Bulls' Deng, Hinrich likely out for Game 4

DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bulls will likely be without the ailing Luol Deng and injured Kirk Hinrich for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Monday.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said at the morning shootaround that Hinrich is "doing a little more" as he tries to come back from a bruised left calf. But the veteran guard will probably miss his seventh straight game.

Deng will likely sit out his sixth in a row as he recovers from a spinal tap after an illness that left him hospitalized and caused him to lose 15 pounds. He had tried to work out Saturday and wound up vomiting. He attempted to practice on Sunday and became ill during warmups, forcing him to stop.

The Heat lead the series 2-1.
