The Bulls moved guard Larry Hughes to the inactive list on Tuesday night after coach Vinny Del Negro held him out of the team's last ten games.
"It's just something Larry wanted to do," Del Negro said. "Larry has been great. But right now the rotation is what the rotation is."
Chicago could leave Hughes on the list for the remainder of the season if a trade isn't worked out before the Feb. 19 deadline.
"I think something should break," Hughes said. "At this point, everybody knows I'm not injured."
