Chicago Tribune "Remember the plan? The Bulls signed Kirk Hinrich to a two-year deal in 2012 to hold the fort down as a starter until Derrick Rose returned last season from knee surgery.

Chicago Tribune "Kirk Hinrich has started 82 percent of his 701 career games, so it's not like replacing the injured Derrick Rose for the first time this season fazed him.

Luol Deng still hospitalized in Chicago, out for Game 7 in Brooklyn. Bulls not ruling out Kirk Hinrich yet.
Chicago Tribune "Kirk Hinrich ditched the walking boot he wore in New York to protect his severely bruised left calf. The pessimism surrounding his chances to play in Thursday's Game 6 remains.

Gibson, Hinrich both did full shootaround, gametime decisions. Rip obviously out. DRose "most likely out," which means out in Thibs-speak.
Hinrich and Gibson are game time decisions. Nothing new with Rose. Thibs says again it's 'unlikely' he plays tonight.
