Hinrich to miss Monday's game

CHICAGO -- Chicago Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich will miss Monday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats due to a "compilation" of injuries and is considered day-to-day, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said.

Hinrich recently suffered a bruised left knee and has been hurt five different times this season. He sat out Sunday's practice.

"It's a compilation of things," Thibodeau said of Hinrich's absence. "He tried to warm up, and he's not quite ready.

"It's day-to-day. He was better yesterday, better today. Hopefully tomorrow, he'll be ready."

Hinrich is averaging 6.7 points, 2.6 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.9 turnovers and 0.9 steals in 25 games this season. He's missed three games due to injury. He had 10 points, seven assists and six rebounds in Saturday's win over the Washington Wizards.
