The AJC reports that former Bull Kirk Hinrich will likely be out for the entire second round. Big blow for the underdogs: “The Hawks said their starting point guard is doubtful to play in the Eastern Conference semifinals against Chicago after suffering a “significant strain” to his right hamstring Thursday. Hinrich sustained the injury late in the Hawks’ series-clinching victory against Orlando at Philips Arena. Hinrich’s injury is a major blow to the Hawks’ prospects against the top-seeded Bulls. He’s best suited to defend All-Star Derrick Rose, and the Hawks also could use Hinrich’s shooting against the league’s best defensive team.”
