Kirk Hinrich Doubtful to Play Against Bulls

by April 30, 2011

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.”
