Kirk Hinrich Expected to Be Out 1-2 Weeks

Bulls doctors have their timetables for Hinrich’s return to action, and Kirk has his own. Sprained thumb be damned: “The Bulls announced Monday that guard Kirk Hinrich would be sidelined 1-2 weeks after three doctors examined his sprained left thumb … Hinrich said he hopes he’s well enough to play Saturday against the Toronto Raptors, but he isn’t sure how the thumb will respond. ‘When we do decide it feels good enough to give it a shot, just make sure it’s taped up and supported as much as possible,’ he said.”
