DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bulls left injured guard Kirk Hinrich at home when they traveled to Boston to face the Celtics in their final game before the All-Star break.
Hinrich hasn't appeared in a game since Jan. 30 at Milwaukee. He had a procedure on Feb. 2 to have an infection cleaned out of his right elbow.
Coach Tom Thibodeau said before Chicago's 103-89 loss to San Antonio on Monday night that he believed Hinrich was going to make the trip to Boston for Wednesday's game. But Thibodeau said Tuesday that Hinrich was not going to travel with the team.
Hinrich has been hampered by a variety of injuries all season long. He is averaging 7.0 points in 40 games.
