After the morning shootaround, Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Marco Belinelli will start at shooting guard for the injured Richard Hamilton against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night.
"I just think it fits best right now," Thibodeau said. "Nothing is etched in stone. He has played well."
Thibodeau said Jimmy Butler's impact coming off the bench with fellow reserve stalwart Jimmy Butler factored in the decision.
"Jimmy has played well coming off the bench," Thibodeau said. "That group has played very well together and they're starting to build some chemistry. That was a big part of the decision.
"We also have the flexibility of putting Kirk (Hinrich) at the shooting guard. A lot of it will be based on matchups."
