CHARLOTTE -- Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich will not play in Friday night's game against the Charlotte Bobcats because of ongoing problems with his right elbow.

This will be the 14th game Hinrich has missed this season because of various injuries. The Bulls are 4-9 on the year in games he hasn't played. Tom Thibodeau was hopeful that Hinrich might return for Sunday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Veteran guard Nate Robinson is expected to start in Hinrich's absence.

"He's not going to go tonight," Thibodeau said. "He's a little bit better today. We'll see where he is (Saturday)."
