Kirk Hinrich will start against the Celtics on Friday and Tony Snell will come off the bench.
With Taj Gibson starting, coach Tom Thibodeau probably wants a little more size on his bench. Snell is rarely involved in the offense, so he's not a great fantasy option. Jan 16 - 7:22 PM

Kirk Hinrich played well against the Bucks on Saturday with 16 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

This is not the norm for Hinrich as the starter and he usually takes a back seat in the offense even when Derrick Rose misses time. He's still not worth grabbing in most leagues.

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will start on Saturday vs. the Celtics.

Jimmy Butler is away from the team on bereavement leave, so Hinrich should see plenty of playing time Saturday. However, the veteran guard doesn't have a lot of upside and should be ignored in standard leagues.
Jan 3 - 7:23 PM

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) is probable for Saturday against the Celtics.

He was able to play on Thursday, and the Bulls could really use him with Mike Dunleavy (ankle) and Jimmy Butler (personal) sidelined. Regardless, Hinrich is only an option in deeper leagues and his return would only dampen the value of Aaron Brooks.

Kirk Hinrich played 27 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday with 10 points, two rebounds and two 3-pointers.

He was 4-of-4 from the field to give him a sterling 125.0 effective field goal percentage today. Hinrich has been practicing for a few days and the Bulls just wanted to make sure he was healthy before using him in the lineup. The Bulls went small a lot today, so Hinrich probably won't be playing 27 minutes too often. He's not really worth owning while Derrick Rose is healthy and doesn't do much while Rose is out either.
Jan 1 - 10:45 PM

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will play Thursday vs. the Nuggets.

Hinrich is averaging just 7.6 points, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.2 three-pointers per game this season, so he's not a great option in daily leagues. His return to action will severely hurt the already limited value of Aaron Brooks.
Jan 1 - 6:19 PM

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

Hinrich was able to participate in Thursday's shootaround and said he wants to play, so that could be a good sign for his availability agains the Nuggets. If Hinrich is unable to go, Aaron Brooks would get a short-term value boost, but he's struggled as of late and is a risky option in daily leagues.
Jan 1 - 11:59 AM

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

It will be Aaron Brooks again getting all of Hinrich's reserve minutes, but he's coming off a two-point dud, and will be a risky option in daily leagues.

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) could be available for Tuesday's game against the Nets, according to Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau.

Hinrich has missed four consecutive games with a left hamstring strain, but Thibodeau said Hinrich participated in shootaround on Monday and may play against Brooklyn on Tuesday. Hinrich doesn't have much fantasy value outside of deep leagues, but his eventual return to the court will put a dent in Aaron Brooks' value.

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will not play on Monday night.

He went through shootaround and is close to being healthy. However, Aaron Brooks is outplaying Hinrich and the Bulls won't want to risk Hinrich getting hurt worse because he's part of the Derrick Rose insurance policy. Give Brooks a look tonight.

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) is expected to go through shootaround, and he could return on Monday against the Pacers.

It's not set in stone that Hinrich will return, but it sounds likely so long as he doesn't have any setbacks during shootaround. If he returns, Aaron Brooks will take a back seat behind Hinrich and Derrick Rose. If Hinrich sits, Brooks would be Rose's backup.

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will not play on Saturday vs. the Pelicans.

This will be his third straight game out of the lineup, and knowing the Bulls, Hinrich likely won't be back until he is at 100 percent. Aaron Brooks will continue seeing a boost in minutes behind Derrick Rose, and is worth a look for owners in need of short-term value.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 11:56:00 AM

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) did not practice on Friday.

He's unlikely to play against the Pelicans on Saturday. Aaron Brooks has been terrific as the primary backup point guard, so he should get minutes in the mid-20s again. Hinrich is not worth owning in most leagues.

Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will not suit up for the Bulls' Christmas Day game vs. the Lakers.

With Hinrich unavailable, Aaron Brooks will see some increased minutes off the bench in what will be a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers. Brooks has scored in double figures in his past four outings and looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Thu, Dec 25, 2014 06:21:00 PM

Coach Tom Thibodeau isn't sure if Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will be available to play Christmas Day vs. the Lakers.

If Hinrich sits, Aaron Brooks will soak up his reserve minutes, and he'll have a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers. Stay tuned.
