Kirk Hinrich scored 17 points on 4-of-12 shooting (2-of-5 from deep, 7-of-10 from the line) with one assist and three steals in the Bulls' 102-90 win over the Bucks on Friday.
Hinrich has brought himself back from the dead over the past week with some low-end value in 12-team leagues, but between his inconsistency and low ceiling owners can still do better. Apr 5 - 1:24 AM

Kirk Hinrich suggested that he might re-sign with the Bulls as an unrestricted free agent this summer.

"I like it here," Hinrich said. "Obviously, returning home was a big factor in why I came back. I would like to stay here. But I don’t know what’s in their future plans." He added that he's finishing the regular season in better health than he has for the past "three or four seasons," which bodes well for the Bulls as they roll toward the playoffs as the East's fourth seed.
Apr 3 - 9:20 AM

On the heels of Friday's scoreless game, Kirk Hinrich scored 11 points with four assists and one steal in 30 minutes vs. the Celtics.

D.J. Augustin caught fire off the bench with 33 points in 31 minutes, but on most nights he and Hinrich remain locked in a value-stunting timeshare. There's no reason to rely on Hinrich for value in standard fantasy leagues, even with four games on tap this week.
Mar 30 - 9:35 PM

Kirk Hinrich missed all six of his field goals for his first scoreless game of the season on Saturday, playing 18 minutes vs. D.J. Augustin's 33 minutes.

Hinrich has only cracked double-digits in 27 games this season, so it's not surprising to see him sputter out from the field. The Bulls had 36 points at halftime on Saturday and Tom Thibodeau simply needed Augustin's offense more than Hinrich's defense, and the two should continue a fairly even minute-share at PG vs. Boston on Sunday.
Mar 29 - 5:50 PM

Kirk Hinrich is averaging 10.6 points and 1.6 three-pointers since the All-Star break, while shooting 49.2 percent from downtown during that stretch.

He's chipping in 2.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 0.9 steals for borderline value in 14-team leagues, but his contributions have been far more valuable for the playoff-bound Bulls. "I’m trying to be aggressive," said Hinrich, who will be a free agent this summer. "I feel like I've been in a good rhythm." He and D.J. Augustin are both averaging 29 minutes per game over the past month but Augustin's superior scoring gives him the edge for fantasy purposes.
Mar 26 - 1:41 PM

Kirk Hinrich scored seven points with two boards, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes on Friday vs. the Pacers.

His March stats have been all over the place with averages of 8.9 points, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 triples on 38.5 percent from the field. This has been the story for Hinrich all season, but the contributions in steals and triples put him on the radar as a player to own in standard leagues.
Mar 21 - 10:50 PM

Kirk Hinrich matched a season-high 19 points vs. the Rockets on Thursday with one rebound, four assists, one block, two steals and five 3-pointers.

It's the first time he's made at least four 3-pointers in a game this season and the first time he's shot over 50 percent from the field since Mar. 2. Hinrich and D.J. Augustin aren't having any trouble putting up numbers together, but the extra treys from DJA makes him the better player to own in standard formats.
Mar 13 - 10:18 PM

Kirk Hinrich played 34 minutes during Sunday's 95-88 overtime win over the Heat with 11 points, three boards, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

The Bulls looked to have ran a designed play for Hinrich with 20 seconds left and he his a floating layup on Joakim Noah assist. Coach Tom Thibodeau went with a backcourt combo of Hinrich and D.J. Augustin quite a bit today and the two have shown they can co-exist. His shooting numbers are starting to get a little better and he's worth a look for owners needing help with 3-pointers.
Mar 9 - 4:59 PM

Kirk Hinrich scored 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with zero rebounds, three assists and no steals or blocks in Friday's win over the Mavs.

Hinrich also had five turnovers in his 30 minutes so this line has a few problems but altogether it fits into his late-round profile.
Feb 28 - 11:39 PM

The Bulls escaped with a 107-104 victory in Atlanta on Tuesday despite Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin shooting a combined 5-of-26 from the field.

Two of Hinrich's made FGs came from downtown and he was 6-of-7 from the free throw line, including three straight after being fouled on a 3-point attempt with under a minute left in a close game. He had 14 points, three assists and three steals to salvage his evening for fantasy owners, while backup Augustin finished with 10 points, one 3-pointer, six assists and two steals.
Feb 25 - 10:39 PM

Kirk Hinrich hit 8-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers for 19 points, two rebounds, a steal and a block, but didn't manage to hand out an assist on Wednesday.

The Bulls won with Hinrich and D.J. Augustin combining for just one dime, but Joakim Noah helped them out with 13 assists (8 points, 4 rebounds) in the win. Hinrich has been playing well and is worth owning in many leagues, but you have to think his next injury is just around the corner.
Feb 19 - 11:17 PM

Bulls VP John Paxson doesn't think his team is "likely" to make any trades with the Feb. 20 deadline rapidly approaching.

"You have to put yourself in the other team's position," Paxson said. "People just don't give up great players. We obviously talk and keep our eyes and ears open. But to anticipate something is going to happen, I don't think that's likely, to be honest with you." Chicago would jump at a chance to deal Carlos Boozer and the final year of his contract, which may be amnestied this summer. Veterans like Kirk Hinrich and Mike Dunleavy may also be discussed in the coming week, but at the very least it doesn't sound like any big-name deals are on the Bulls' horizon.
Feb 13 - 3:52 PM

Kirk Hinrich started and had 10 points, two rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-12 shooting in 30 minutes on Tuesday.

D.J. Augustin came off the bench for 13 points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on 4-of-11 shooting in 31 minutes. You have to think it's only a matter of time before Hinrich is hurt again, so hanging onto DJA should be a no-brainer, despite the timeshare.
Feb 11 - 11:17 PM

Kirk Hinrich said that he's had "more of an offensive mindset" recently, and he's averaging 16.0 points in Chicago's past two games.

"I think he's finding his rhythm offensively," said coach Tom Thibodeau. "D.J. [Augustin] has been terrific throughout ... and they played very effectively with each other. It allows you to swing the ball to get to the second pick-and-roll and that’s been very effective for us." Thibodeau's goal is to play both of his PGs around 30 minutes per game, and it seems Hinrich's 25-minute limit has been eased up.

Kirk Hinrich scored 19 points against the Lakers on Sunday, adding four boards, five assists, three steals and three 3-pointers on 7-of-13 from the field in 29 minutes

He made the most of his matchup against a weak Lakers defense and exceeded his minutes limit tonight. Hinrich was only expected to play 20-25 minutes for an indefinite period based on a Friday report. He's probably not going to be as good as he's letting on, but fantasy owners can give him a look.
