Kirk Hinrich (chest) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.
Hinrich was able to play during the Bulls' last game, so it would be a bit surprising if he were to sit out on Friday. However, with Derrick Rose (hamstring tightness) also being listed as probable, Hinrich doesn't make for a very attractive option in most leagues. Nov 27 - 7:09 PM

Kirk Hinrich returned from a chest injury vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday, scoring 10 points with eight assists and one steal in 31 minutes off the bench.

He made two 3-pointers and Derrick Rose left early with hamstring tightness, which opened up more minutes in the second half for Hinrich and Aaron Brooks. Hinrich should start vs. the Celtics on Friday if Rose can't suit up, but even as the Bulls' starting PG he's a mediocre fantasy option.

Kirk Hinrich (chest) will play vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

He's probably not 100 percent healthy, but the Bulls' tough veteran will suit up as Derrick Rose's primary backup. As long as Rose is healthy there's no reason to touch Hinrich in 12-team fantasy leagues.

Kirk Hinrich (chest) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Denver.

Hinrich doesn't offer much fantasy value while Derrick Rose is healthy, and his status will have a greater impact on Aaron Brooks' minute allotment. Stay tuned, but whether he plays or not should be of little concern to owners in standard leagues.

Kirk Hinrich (chest) will not play against the Jazz on Monday.

He did not get a chance to warm up and it would appear he's going to miss more time. Aaron Brooks will be getting minutes and we should know more when we find out the status of Derrick Rose (hamstring). Hinrich has very low fantasy value.
Nov 24 - 7:38 PM

Kirk Hinrich (chest) is now being listed as questionable for Monday.

Previously listed as doubtful, Hinrich must be feeling better than anticipated. Hinrich is a tough player, but it would be a little surprising to see him return as soon as Monday's game. With Derrick Rose (hamstring) also iffy, Aaron Brooks could be in line to start at point guard. E'Twaun Moore would also see some run if Rose and Hinrich sit.

Kirk Hinrich (chest) will be a limited participant during Sunday's practice, and is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

If both Hinrich and Derrick Rose (hamstring) are unable to suit up for Monday's game, Aaron Brooks is going to get all the minutes he can handle, with E'Twaun Moore seeing some extended minutes off the bench. Brooks makes sense as a speculative add in standard leagues.

Kirk Hinrich (chest) is hoping to return this weekend according to Bulls.com writer Sam Smith.

"I hope I’m better (Saturday)," said Hinrich. "Today was tough." Aaron Brooks is a good speculative pickup with Derrick Rose (hamstring) still day-to-day with no discernible timetable and Hinrich sort of in the same boat. Just know the run could be short-lived for Brooks if his teammates return quickly.

Kirk Hinrich (chest) will not play against the Blazers on Friday night.

He suffered the injury in the fourth quarter and has been diagnosed with a chest contusion. Hinrich has missed a lot of time with bumps and bruises in his career, so Aaron Brooks makes sense as a pickup in all leagues right now. Expect E'Twaun Moore to get more run, too.
Nov 21 - 3:53 PM

X-rays were negative on Kirk Hinrich's chest and he was diagnosed with a contusion following Thursday's game against the Kings.

He didn't play at the end of the game, but that doesn't necessarily mean his injury had anything to do with it. Hinrich finished with nine points, three rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes. If he is going to miss time, Aaron Brooks would almost become a must add as the only healthy point guard who is in the rotation. E'Twaun Moore would also get in the rotation.
Nov 21 - 1:22 AM

Kirk Hinrich scored 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers, two rebounds, five assists and three steals in Monday's win over the Clippers.

Hinrich doesn't hold 14-team value on the year despite averaging 28.4 minutes per game this season. With Derrick Rose (hamstring) returning any time he's a Hail Mary in daily leagues at best.
Nov 18 - 1:57 AM

Kirk Hinrich scored 15 points in a 99-90 loss to the Pacers on Saturday to go with seven assists, two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

He didn't score in his last start, so we didn't see this one coming. Hinrich has been too inconsistent to scoop in most fantasy leagues.
Nov 16 - 12:00 AM

Kirk Hinrich will start against the Pacers on Saturday.

The Bulls have ruled Derrick Rose (hamstring) out, so Hinrich and Aaron Brooks will get the minutes at point guard. Hinrich has posted a usage rate of just 16.7 on the season while Brooks has turned in a usage of 26.8, so it's pretty obvious Brooks is the preferred play tonight.
Nov 15 - 2:51 PM

Kirk Hinrich didn't score in 28 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday with one rebound, five assists and one steal.

He started with Derrick Rose (ankles) out and his off night may have cost his team a win. Hinrich missed five mid-range jumpers and two shots in the paint for a Josh Smith-like shot chart. He can be left on the wire in most leagues and obviously Aaron Brooks is the hotter property in fantasy leagues.
Nov 8 - 11:54 PM

Kirk Hinrich will start against the Sixers on Friday.

Derrick Rose (ankles) is out tonight and Hinrich will share his minutes at point guard with Aaron Brooks. Hinrich is more of a deep-league play tonight even with a good matchup.
