Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich has returned to Chicago to have his right elbow examined and will not play when the Bulls face the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.
Hinrich has been hampered by injuries for much of the season. He is averaging 7.0 points in 40 games.
He started Chicago's 104-88 victory at Milwaukee on Wednesday and finished with six points in 32 1/2 minutes.
The Bulls say Hinrich's status "will be determined once all medical information has been gathered."
