Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Kirk Hinrich is fully healthy, and that his playing time has been a matchup based decision.
Apparently Thibodeau doesn't like that matchup, as Hinrich has been a negligible part of the Bulls' rotations through the past two games. With Derrick Rose, Aaron Brooks, and Tony Snell all healthy and ahead of him in the rotation, he's not going to earn enough minutes to matter in fantasy leagues. Apr 26 - 3:24 PM

Kirk Hinrich played six minutes against the Bucks on Thursday with no points, no assists and one steal.

Derrick Rose stole the show and Hinrich wasn't needed tonight. Aaron Brooks was also only on the court for 10 minutes. Plus, Tony Snell was fantastic tonight, so the Bulls didn't need to run two-PG lineups in the second half.
Apr 23 - 11:31 PM

Kirk Hinrich (knee) said that he will play in Game 3 against the Bucks on Thursday.

Head coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed that Hinrich will be available tonight, and with him back in the rotation he could take away some minutes from Aaron Brooks and Tony Snell. However, he'll likely be eased back into things after spending the past two weeks on the sidelines, so he’s a non-option in fantasy leagues.
Apr 23 - 6:20 PM

Kirk Hinrich (knee) is questionable to play against the Bucks in Game 3 on Thursday.

Based on some comments from coach Tom Thibodeau last week, Hinrich might not play if healthy. In essence, Thibodeau said Hinrich and Tony Snell will split the ninth-man duties in the rotation. Considering the length of the Bucks, it makes sense to just ride Snell in this series. Regardless, Snell won't have much value.
Apr 22 - 2:49 PM

Kirk Hinrich (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, and head coach Tom Thibodeau is optimistic that he will play in Game 3 on Thursday.

Hinrich hasn't played since Apr. 11, so the Bulls will likely ease him back into the rotation. He could potentially steal some minutes away from Aaron Brooks or Tony Snell, but Hinrich likely won't have a big role in the postseason, especially with Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler healthy.
Apr 22 - 1:45 PM

Bulls' head coach Tom Thibodeau sounded optimistic about Kirk Hinrich's (knee) availability for Thursday's Game 3 against the Bucks.

Hinrich would likely take away some minutes from Aaron Brooks and Tony Snell, but he's not a guy that makes major contributions to the stat sheet, so he's not a great guy to target in fantasy leagues.
Apr 21 - 2:37 PM

Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks in Game 2.

Hinrich was also ruled out of Game 1, and although he was thought to be improving, he hasn't made enough progress to get back into action. With Derrick Rose hooping and Aaron Brooks backing him up, Hinrich's availability doesn't seem to matter much anyway.
Apr 20 - 12:07 PM

Bulls' head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Kirk Hinrich (knee) is improving, but he's unsure about his status for Game 2 against the Bucks on Monday.

Tony Snell will pick up most of Hinrich's reserve minutes if he's again unable to go on Monday, but he's not going to see enough floor time to matter in any league.
Apr 19 - 2:32 PM

Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Bucks, and it is unclear if he will be able to play in Game 2 on Monday.

He has reportedly "plateaued" in his rehab, so it looks like he could miss more time. With Hinrich out of commission, Tony Snell will see some minutes in the rotation Saturday. We will update Hinrich's status when we know more.
Apr 18 - 11:24 AM

Kirk Hinrich (knee) was unable to practice Friday, and his status is uncertain for Game 1 on Saturday against the Bucks.

If Hinrich can't go, Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks will split most of his minutes. Hinrich is a solid defender, but he doesn't really bring a lot to the stat sheet, so he's not really a factor in most fantasy leagues.
Apr 17 - 2:14 PM

Kirk Hinrich (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks will split most of Hinrich's minutes, with Rose offering the most upside.
Apr 14 - 4:54 PM

Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Monday against the Nets.

Hinrich didn't go through shootaround and isn't expected to return until at least Game 1 of the playoffs. It will be the Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks show at point guard for Chicago, and that's the way it should remain regardless of whether or not Hinrich is available.
Apr 13 - 11:07 AM

Kirk Hinrich suffered a hyperextended left knee on Saturday vs. the 76ers and will not be able to return.

He has had some tough luck with his knee in recent weeks, but the good news is that he plans on traveling for Monday's game vs. the Nets. However, with Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks both healthy, Hinrich won't be making an impact in fantasy leagues any time soon. We will update Hinrich's status when we know more, but he belongs on the wire in almost all leagues.
Apr 11 - 9:41 PM

Kirk Hinrich is a go for Thursday's game vs. the Heat.

Hinrich is one of those guys that helps his actual team much more than a fantasy team. He's averaging a meager 5.9 points and 2.3 assists on the season, so it's safe to ignore Hinrich in most leagues.
Apr 9 - 6:43 PM

Kirk Hinrich is probable to play against the Heat on Thursday.

Hinrich only played 15 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Magic, so he'll likely be limited along with Derrick Rose on Thursday. With a split of minutes with both Rose and Aaron Brooks on Thursday, Hinrich has very little fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues.
