Carlos Boozer won't play Friday night in Brooklyn because of a right hamstring that he said is "sore and stiff."
Joakim Noah is out with plantar fasciitis.
Kirk Hinrich definitely won't play at the brand-new Barclays Center. He returned to Chicago to have his right elbow examined and will be re-examined by team physician Brian Cole.
Nate Robinson, Richard Hamilton, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson and Nazr Mohammed will start for the Bulls.
