Hinrich a game-time decision for Bulls' preseason finale

DEERFIELD, ILL.Bulls starting point guard Kirk Hinrich wasnt a full participant in the teams Thursday-afternoon practice at the Berto Center, two days after suffering a strained right groin in Tuesdays home win over Oklahoma City.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said the veteran, who rode a stationary bike and did some shooting drills, is a game-time decision for the teams final preseason game, Friday evening against Indiana on the campus of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind.

Hinrich is a little better, but didnt do much today. Spot shooting for him, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau, who noted that the veteran also rode a stationary bike for conditioning purposes, said. Well see.

Hinrich was unavailable to the media for comment.

If Hinrich is unable to suit up against the Pacers, its expected that backup point guard Nate Robinson will start in his place.
