DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich will probably miss Thursday's playoff game against the Brooklyn Nets because of a bruised left calf.
Coach Tom Thibodeau didn't completely rule it out, but said Hinrich will ``most likely'' sit out a second straight game as the Bulls try to close out this first-round series. They lead 3-2.
The Bulls might also be without Luol Deng and Taj Gibson. They are game-time decisions after staying home Wednesday and missing practice because they were ill. Thibodeau said they are ``feeling a little better'' and dressed for the shootaround but ``didn't do anything.''
He also said Derrick Rose (knee) will remain sidelined, as he has been all year, and that Joakim Noah (foot) ``actually was very good today.''
