Bulls still without Kirk Hinrich; but Joakim Noah, Marco Belinelli will play against Bobcats

Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says guard Kirk Hinrich will miss Friday night's game against the Charlotte Bobcats with a lingering right elbow injury, but center Joakim Noah and guard Marco Belinelli will play.

All three had been listed as day-to-day on the injury report.

Hinrich has missed nine of the team's last 10 games.

The Bulls are looking to bounce back against the NBA-worst Bobcats after a 19-point loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night.

Point guard Derrick Rose remains out while recovering from a knee injury.
