ATLANTA (AP) - The Chicago Bulls were without three starters for Saturday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Guard Kirk Hinrich, center Joakim Noah and forward Carlos Boozer did not play for the second straight game.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said Hinrich had a procedure in Chicago on Saturday to have an infection cleaned out of his right elbow. Hinrich is expected to miss about a week.

Noah was held out with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. Boozer, who participated in pregame wamups, was held out with a right hamstring injury.

Hawks guard Jeff Teague left the game in the first quarter with a right hip contusion but returned in the second quarter. Hawks guard Devin Harris was in uniform, but did not start due to a sore left foot.

The Hawks also were without backup center Zaza Pachulia with a sore right Achilles.
