The Bulls have battled injuries for most of the season and are already without the services of Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson against the Pacers. Richard Hamilton is listed as questionable.

Hinrich has started all 44 games that he has appeared in for the Bulls this season but has also battled injuries of late. He missed most of February with an elbow injury. Hinrich is averaging 7.4 points and 5.4 assists this season on 39 percent shooting.

If Hinrich is unable to play, Nate Robinson will likely get the start at point guard with Marquise Teague becoming the top backup off the bench.
