Bulls practice without Hinrich, Deng and Gibson

Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich said his injured left calf is getting better, but it still prohibited him from practicing on Wednesday and left his status uncertain for Thursday’s Game 6 against the Brooklyn Nets at the United Center.

In addition, Taj Gibson and Luol Deng stayed at home Wednesday with what coach Tom Thibodeau called “flu-like symptoms.”

The Bulls hold a 3-2 lead over the Nets in the first-round series.
