Manager Joe Maddon said Hendricks' injury isn't serious and is hoping rest will solve the issue.
Analysis: Hendricks is 4-3 with a 4.09 ERA in 11 starts after going 16-8 with an NL-best 2.13 ERA in 2016 to finish third in Cy Young Award voting.

Hendricks struck out three, ending the game with a 4.09 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks was lifted for a pinch hitter in the Cubs' five-run fourth after giving up four runs in the top half of the inning. He has now allowed nine runs over nine innings in his last two games after yielding just nine runs over 36.2 innings in his previous six starts. He makes his next start Friday against the Rockies, whom he limited to three runs over 6.1 innings on May 10.

In his final two starts versus the Redbirds in 2016, Hendricks compiled a 1.80 ERA and 0.53 WHIP while striking out 19 over 15 innings.

Analysis: Hendricks improved to 2-1 with a 1.82 ERA in his last five starts after going 1-1 with a 6.19 ERA in his first three outings. It's a very encouraging sign for the Cubs after the wiry right-hander blossomed into one of their most dependable starters last year.
May 10 4:45 PM PT5:45 PM MT6:45 PM CT7:45 PM ET19:45 ET23:45 GMT7:45 4:45 PM MST6:45 PM EST7:15 PM VEN3:45 UAE (+1)6:45 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks fell to 2-2, allowing three runs - two earned - on four hits and two walks in 6.1 innings, as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Colorado Rockies 3-0 on Wednesday. Hendricks struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.40 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks pitched well before running into a little trouble in the seventh inning, as his ERA lowered to 1.52 over his last four starts. He next takes the ball Wednesday against the Reds, and is 2-0 with a 2.01 ERA in four starts versus Cincinnati at Wrigley Field.
May 5 3:39 PM PT4:39 PM MT5:39 PM CT6:39 PM ET18:39 ET22:39 GMT6:39 3:39 PM MST5:39 PM EST6:09 PM VEN2:39 UAE (+1)5:39 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks allowed six hits and two walks without giving up a run in 5.1 innings as the Chicago Cubs lost to the New York Yankees 3-2 on Friday.

Analysis: Hendricks was in line for the win until Brett Gardner put the Yankees ahead with a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth. The right-hander is 1-0 with a 1.04 ERA in his last three starts after going 1-1 with a 6.19 ERA in his first three.
May 1 6:52 AM PT7:52 AM MT8:52 AM CT9:52 AM ET9:52 ET13:52 GMT21:52 6:52 AM MST8:52 AM EST9:22 AM VEN17:52 UAE8:52 AM CT-Hendricks allowed two runs on three hits and three walks in 6 innings as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Boston Red Sox 6-2 on Sunday.
Analysis: Hendricks struck out six, ending the game with a 4.18 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season. After giving up a first-inning homer Hendricks was solid, so maybe he is turning the corner after some early issues that includes a lack of velocity.
Apr. 26 9:48 PM PT10:48 PM MT11:48 PM CT12:48 AM ET0:48 ET4:48 GMT12:48 9:48 PM MST11:48 PM EST12:18 AM VEN8:48 UAE11:48 PM CT-Hendricks allowed four hits, struck out three and walked two over six innings in Tuesday's 1-0 win at Pittsburgh in easily his best performance of the young season for the defending World Series champions.
Analysis: Hendricks became the first Cub in nearly 80 years to lead the majors in ERA (2.13) last season but took the mound on Tuesday with the number at 6.19. It dropped to 4.50. ''It's just one start,'' Hendricks said. ''It's not a `back' thing. I'm not in the zone, dialed in like I was last year. That was a completely different feeling and sensation (but) felt a lot better. It's more on track.''

Analysis: The reigning NL ERA champ is off to a shaky start. He's given up at least three earned runs in all three of his outings, something he did just six times in 30 starts last season.
Apr. 14 7:44 PM PT8:44 PM MT9:44 PM CT10:44 PM ET22:44 ET2:44 GMT10:44 7:44 PM MST9:44 PM EST10:14 PM VEN6:44 UAE (+1)9:44 PM CT-Hendricks lost at home to the Pirates on Friday, yielding three runs and six hits in five innings with two walks and three strikeouts.

Apr. 9 10:29 PM PT11:29 PM MT12:29 AM CT1:29 AM ET1:29 ET5:29 GMT13:29 10:29 PM MST12:29 AM EST12:59 AM VEN9:29 UAE12:29 AM CT-Pitching on eight days of rest thanks to weather delays during the Cubs' opening series in St. Louis, Hendricks was a little shaky out of the gate in Saturday's 11-6 win over the Brewers. The right-hander allowed four runs - two in the first inning - and five hits while striking out six and walking one over six innings.
Analysis: Hendricks, who led the majors with a 2.13 ERA last year, gave up a leadoff home run to Jonathan Villar. ''Once the game started going, I started to find my groove a little bit,'' Hendricks said. ''By the fifth inning, it was pretty good. The sixth was really good. I just needed to get into a groove.'' He'll face the Pirates on Friday, and went 3-0 with a 0.47 ERA while striking out 21 and walking one over 19 innings against them last year.
