Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich was forced to miss Game 5
of the team’s opening-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets due to a
calf injury. The bruised left calf could keep him out for longer than just one
game, but Hinrich told reporters – including K.C. Johnson of The Chicago
Tribune – that he’s going to do everything he can to not be out for too long.
"It’s just one of those things," Hinrich said. "I’m going to do everything the medical staff tells me to do and see how it progresses. Hopefully, I won’t be out long. I’m going to get a lot of treatment, do everything they tell me to do and hopefully it will be sooner than later."
