NEW YORK (AP) — Luol Deng will miss Game 7 of Chicago's series against the Brooklyn Nets, but the Bulls still hope Kirk Hinrich can play.

Coach Tom Thibodeau says Deng remains hospitalized in Chicago with an illness and is unable to travel for Saturday night's game.

Hinrich has missed the last two games with a bruised left calf, and the Nets won both to even the series. He has done little besides shooting, but Thibodeau says the point guard will warm up and see how he feels.
