Kirk Hinrich left Friday's game against the Pacers with a left hip pointer injury, and did not return.
Hinrich played 22 minutes off the bench and finished the game with 11 points, two assists, three 3-pointers and a turnover. Injuries tend to sideline Hinrich longer than most players, so we're going to consider him questionable for Monday's game against the Spurs. Nov 27 - 10:23 PM

Kirk Hinrich made his second start for Derrick Rose (ankle) on Friday with 17 points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

This is not 2015 Kirk Hinrich. It's the most points he's scored since Oct. 31, 2014 and he did it in efficient fashion. While Rose could miss Tuesday, fantasy owners shouldn't be looking to grab Hinrich after this one.
Nov 21 - 4:32 AM

Kirk Hinrich started Wednesday's game in place of Derrick Rose (ankle), knocking down 6-of-7 shots with a pair of 3-pointers to finish with 14 points, six assists and one steal.

It was a rough matchup vs. one of the league's most explosive backcourts in Phoenix, but Hinrich held his own. He added two 3-pointers and two rebounds with only one turnover in 23 minutes, and should get another start if Derrick Rose (ankle) can't play vs. the Warriors on Friday.
Nov 19 - 1:19 AM

If Derrick Rose (ankle) is out for Wednesday against the Suns, Kirk Hinrich would start.

This is pretty much the same plan coach Tom Thibodeau had. Aaron Brooks is better off the bench while Hinrich can be sort of hidden to a degree. If Rose is out, it'll likely be Jimmy Butler stepping up the most
Nov 18 - 2:13 PM

Kirk Hinrich (toe) played nine minutes in his return on Friday.

He scored five points with one assist and one 3-pointer. Hinrich can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Nov 14 - 1:51 AM

Kirk Hinrich (toe) is active on Friday.

He might get some minutes, which takes away from Aaron Brooks. Fantasy owners should be ignoring this in most cases.
Nov 13 - 7:31 PM

Kirk Hinrich (toe) is expected to be active for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

He may be on the active roster Friday, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll actually play. With Fred Hoiberg at the helm in Chicago, Hinrich will be a non-factor in fantasy hoops, and he can safely remain on the wire in all leagues while the team is healthy.
Nov 12 - 2:36 PM

Kirk Hinrich (toe) will not play on Monday vs. Philadelphia.

Hinrich will miss his sixth straight game, but you may not have noticed anyway since he's so far off of the fantasy radar.
Nov 9 - 11:39 AM

Kirk Hinrich recently had an injection to speed up the healing process in his toe.

Hinrich has missed the past five games because of the injury and is still battling soreness in his toe. It sounds like he is day-to-day, but Aaron Brooks will continue to handle the backup point-guard duties in the meantime. Hinrich is not on the fantasy radar.
Nov 8 - 10:31 AM

Kirk Hinrich (toe) will not play on Saturday against the Wolves.

It'll be Aaron Brooks backing up Derrick Rose tonight. Rose looked terrific on Thursday and played a season-high 37 minutes after playing just 24 on Tuesday. Brooks is not a strong DFS play tonight.
Nov 7 - 4:23 PM

Kirk Hinrich (sore toe) is doubtful to play in Saturday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Hinrich has not been a factor for the Bulls this season, and it's safe to leave him on the wire in all leagues.
Nov 6 - 5:46 PM

Kirk Hinrich (sore toe) has been ruled out for Thursdays game against the Thunder.

Hinrich received an injection in his toe and will miss his fourth straight game on Thursday. The 34-year-old has played just five minutes this season and can be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues at this point.
Nov 5 - 12:17 PM

Kirk Hinrich (sore toe) will miss Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

Hinrich has played just five minutes this season and won't add to that total on Tuesday night against Charlotte. Injury aside, the veteran is buried on Chicago's depth chart and can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.
Nov 3 - 11:13 AM

Kirk Hinrich (sore toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

Through the first three games of the season, Hinrich has only managed to get on the floor for a total of five minutes, so his absence from the roster tonight won't have a ripple effect in fantasy hoops. With Tom Thibodeau no longer at the helm in Chicago, Hinrich will struggle to get into the rotation, and he remains a non-factor in all leagues.
Nov 1 - 5:22 PM

Kirk Hinrich (foot) and E'Twaun Moore are expected to start for the Bulls on Monday against the Hornets.

The Bulls are experimenting with Derrick Rose (orbital fracture) still out of action, so Jimmy Butler will shift down to small forward for this particular contest. Hinrich is unlikely to be a normal part of the regular season rotation, but Moore has played well this preseason and could very well see minutes ahead of Aaron Brooks.
