Description: Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will return to action Wednesday after missing the last four games.
Insight: D.J. Augustin has outplayed Hinrich and is the more valuable member of Chicago's backcourt. Hinrich will come off the bench Wednesday.

Description: Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich (hamstring) will miss his third straight game Saturday. SOURCE: K.C. Johnson, Chicago Tribune
Insight: D.J. Augustin has outplayed Hinrich with averages of 17.8 points, 6.9 assists, 2.8 threes and 1.0 steals over his last eight games. There's no guarantee Hinrich will get his starting job back when he's healthy.

Description: The Bulls will be without Kirk Hinrich Friday against the Clippers. SOURCE: K.C. Johnson, Chicago Tribune
Insight: It's the second game he's missed with a hamstring injury. With D.J. Augustin manning the point for Chicago, Hinrich (8.0 ppg, 4.7 apg) doesn't have a very high ceiling. For fantasy purposes, it's best to avoid him for now.
 
1/22/2014 12:11:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich will not play Wednesday due to a right hamstring injury. According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, coach Tom Thibodeau said Hinrich will probably be out a week.
Insight: That will lead to D.J. Augustin taking most of the minutes at point guard. Augustin has averaged 18 points, 7.0 assists, 2.7 threes and 1.3 steals his last six games and should be owned in all leagues.
 
1/20/2014 10:59:00 PM

Insight: D.J. Augustin has been outplaying Hinrich off the bench and the injury could lead to Augustin moving into the starting lineup.
 
1/17/2014 9:26:00 PM
Description: Bulls PG Kirk Hinrich had 18 points, five rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two threes in 28 minutes Friday at Washington.
Insight: Hinrich had just 12 blocks all season prior to Friday, so don't expect the guard to suddenly become Serge Ibaka. He also scored in double figures just once in his previous 10 games before posting 18 Friday.
 
12/25/2013 12:14:00 PM
Description: Bulls PG Kirk Hinrich (back) was at Tuesday's practice and after a game-time decision was in the starting lineup.
Insight: Hinrich missed his fifth straight game Saturday due to a back injury. He will likely share time evenly with D.J. Augustin until he's 100 percent.
 
12/25/2013 10:01:00 AM
Description: Bulls PG Kirk Hinrich (back) was at Tuesday's practice, but figures to be a game-time decision.

12/21/2013 11:01:00 AM
Description: Bulls PG Kirk Hinrich (back) missed a fourth straight game Thursday and is questionable for Saturday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said that Hinrich's back hasn't improved much. Chicago will have to keep playing D.J. Augustin, who set a season-high with 15 points.
 
12/19/2013 6:49:00 PM

12/18/2013 3:17:00 PM
Description: The Bulls aren't expecting point guard Kirk Hinrich to play Wednesday against the Rockets. SOURCE: Nick Friedell, ESPN Chicago
Insight: He's missed the last two games with a back injury. Newly acquired point guard D.J. Augustin absorbed 37 minutes in Monday's loss to Orlando. He could see a similar workload Wednesday with Hinrich unlikely to play.
 
12/16/2013 6:44:00 PM
Description: The Bulls will be without starting point guard Kirk Hinrich on Monday night. SOURCE: Aggrey Sam, Comcast Sportsnet Chicago
Insight: Hinrich has been battling a stiff back. Marquis Teague will start at the one for the second game in a row.
 
12/16/2013 1:48:00 PM
Description: Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich (back) is questionable for Monday's game against Orlando.
Insight: Hinrich missed the morning shootaround which is a bad sign, but will still be a game-time decision. The veteran has averaged 8.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.1 threes this season.
 
12/14/2013 6:57:00 PM

11/18/2013 3:22:00 PM
Description: Bulls backup point guard Kirk Hinrich could start playing more alongside Derrick Rose.
Insight: The two played well in the Bulls' upset of previously unbeaten Indiana and using Rose at the off guard could save wear and tear on his body. If Hinrich can play more than his current 27 mpg he could improve on his 8.6 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 4.5 apg averages.
 
10/29/2013 10:53:00 AM
Description: Bulls backup point guard Kirk Hinrich (concussion and shoulder injury) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against Miami.
Insight: Hinrich practiced Sunday and Monday and should be ready to go. He'll be coming off the bench this season behind starters Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler and won't be a good a fantasy value this season.
 
10/25/2013 4:33:00 PM
Description: Bulls backup point guard Kirk Hinrich is dealing with a concussion and should injury which has him listed as doubtful for the season opener.
Insight: Derrick Rose and Marquis Teague will cover the point guard position.

Description: Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich is out for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against Miami with his continuing calf problem, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: Nate Robinson will have to play heavy minutes, but he's not at 100 percent either, hurting his shoulder in Game 4.
