CHICAGO (AP) Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich is out for Chicago's game against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night because of a knee injury.
Hinrich was hurt in the first half of a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday and also missed Wednesday's road win in Philadelphia. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he is ``getting better, but not quite there.''
Hinrich is averaging 6.7 points and 5.5 assists in 19 starts for Chicago.
Nate Robinson will start in place of Hinrich against the Nets. The banged-up Bulls are already without guards Derrick Rose and Richard Hamilton.
The winter can feel like one of the slowest seasons of the year, especially for baseball fans who long for the season to pick back up again.
But Nationals outfielder Juan Soto met with fans on Saturday at a Dick’s Sporting Goods in Bailey's Crossroads, Virginia, and did his best to make them feel merry by getting in the holiday spirit.
Soto already helped give D.C. the greatest gift of all in a World Series title, so maybe he really is Mr. Claus.

After undergoing an MRI Monday, Derrius Guice reportedly suffered an MCL sprain, NFL's Ian Rapoport tweeted Tuesday.
The MCL sprain is in the same knee Guice injured in 2018 with an ACL tear, but according to Rapoport, the ACL is still intact following Sunday's injury. Before learning the results of the MRI, Redskins head coach Bill Callahan told the media Monday that Guice will not play Sunday's Week 15 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. It is unclear whether Guice will play the remaining two games of the season against the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.
Guice tweeted Tuesday about his positive outlook regarding the diagnosis.
