Bulls' Kirk Hinrich To Miss Game 2

(CBS) Bulls reserve guard Kirk Hinrich will miss Game 2 on Monday night against the Bucks because of a hyperextended left knee, Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said.

It will be the fourth straight game Hinrich has missed with the injury, as he sat out the final two regular-season games and Saturday's opener. Hinrich did some shooting, running and biking at the morning shootaround, but he's not ready for game competition yet.

"He feels better today, but still not quite good enough," Thibodeau said.

Hinrich is averaging 5.7 points per game this season. He figures into the rotation as the ninth man, splitting time with Tony Snell on a matchup basis, Thibodeau has said previously.

Everyone else is healthy for the Bulls, who lead the series 1-0.
