This will be the fourth consecutive game Hinrich has missed with a calf injury. After playing 60 minutes in a triple-overtime win over Brooklyn in Game 4 of the opening round, Hinrich couldn't take the court in the final three games of the series as his teammates toughed out a win.
Though he's no longer an effective scorer, Hinrich proved to be integral to Chicago's success throughout the season. A talented defender with length and experience, he helped the Bulls to weather an entire season without Derrick Rose and still reach the conference semifinals.
In the first four games of the postseason, Hinrich averaged 11.3 points, 5.8 assists and two steals per game.
