INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Chicago Bulls will be without three starters Monday night at Indiana.

Guard Kirk Hinrich did not travel with the team after having a procedure to clean out an infection in his right elbow Saturday.

Forward Joakim Noah also is out with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He told reporters Monday morning that he's hoping a couple extra days of rest will help him get close to 100 percent.

The Bulls did get some good news as forward Carlos Boozer will start after returning from an injured right hamstring.

Monday night's game, rescheduled from a Dec. 26 postponement, features the two top teams in the Central Division.

Another starter, guard Derrick Rose, still has not played as he continues to recover from a torn ACL sustained late last season.
