Bulls` Kirk Hinrich likely out for Game 6

DEERFIELD, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich will probably miss Thursday's playoff game against the Brooklyn Nets because of a bruised left calf.

Coach Tom Thibodeau didn't completely rule it out, but said Hinrich will "most likely" sit out a second straight game as the Bulls try to close out this first-round series. They lead 3-2.

The Bulls might also be without Luol Deng and Taj Gibson. They are game-time decisions after staying home Wednesday and missing practice because they were ill. Thibodeau said they are "feeling a little better" and dressed for the shootaround but "didn't do anything."

He also said Derrick Rose (knee) will remain sidelined, as he has been all year, and that Joakim Noah (foot) "actually was very good today."
