Bulls Forward Injured

DEERFIELD, Illinois () -- Toni Kukoc's status for Game Three of the Eastern Conference semifinals is uncertain after the Chicago Bulls forward injured his lower back in practice.


Bulls trainer Chip Schaefer said that Kukoc suffered a lower lumbar injury at the team's Deerfield practice facility and was being treated at a local hospital.


The Bulls are scheduled to travel to New York later Friday for Saturday's game against the Knicks, but the Croatian is not expected to make the flight.


Kukoc is averaging 11.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in five playoff games.
