NEW YORK (AP) -- The Bulls will be without point guard Kirk Hinrich on Monday night against Brooklyn because of a bruised left calf. His absence might give Game 4 star Nate Robinson a chance to start in the potential clincher for Chicago.
Hinrich was hurt during Saturday's 142-134 triple-overtime victory, playing through the injury to finish with 18 points and a playoff career-high 14 assists in 60 minutes.
But he was wearing a walking boot Monday, walking with a noticeable limp.
Robinson rallied the Bulls from a 14-point deficit late in the fourth quarter, scoring 29 of his 34 points after the third quarter as Chicago took a 3-1 lead in the series.
