DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich is doubtful for a Monday night matchup against the Boston Celtics, coach Tom Thibodeau said.

"He got treatment," Thibodeau said after practice.

Hinrich did not participate in any morning drills, although he was at the Berto Center getting his right hip worked on.

Hinrich injured it late in the first half of a Bulls win over Minnesota on Saturday night. He had an MRI on Sunday and was listed as day to day.

Thibodeau said Sunday that guard Nate Robinson will start in Hinrich's place while rookie Marquis Teague will serve as his backup. Robinson faces a tough draw in his first start against Rajon Rondo.

"Nate will be ready," Thibodeau said. "Nate's been around. Nate's played against him (Rondo). But they are more than just Rondo."

The Bulls host the Celtics before heading on their first extended road trip of the season while the circus takes over the United Center.
