Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich game-time decision for Game 7

Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich has missed the team’s past two games due to a severe calf injury. He’s traveled with the club to New York for tonight’s Game 7 against the Brooklyn Nets, but he’s listed as a game-time decision, according to K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune.




Hinrich suffered his calf injury during Game 4 of the opening-round series while he was taking a charge from Nets guard Deron Williams. He was ruled out for Game 5, and his return was questionable for Game 6. He ultimately missed the team’s last contest – which extended the series to a deciding Game 7 – as he continued to walking gingerly on the leg.

While he’s been doing everything he can as far as treatment goes, it’s to be determined if Hinrich has had enough time to recover from his calf injury. He’s a pivotal part of the Bulls’ team, which could also be without forward Luol Deng who’s dealing with the viral flu.
