Kirk Hinrich injury: Guard participates in full practice, hopes to play in opener

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE

Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich was a full participant in practice on Monday and hopes to play in the season opener on Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings.

[Note by your friendly BullsBlogger, 2:30pm: For his part, Hinrich says that as long as there are no setbacks he plans on playing Wednesday. ]

The Bulls practiced today in preparation for their season opener on Wednesday, and Kirk Hinrich, who has been battling a groin injury, was a full participant:

If Hinrich truly was a full participant, I have to imagine he plays on Wednesday, at the very least in a somewhat reduced role. And I sure hope he does play, because I really don't want to see only Nate Robinson and Marquis Teague available at the point. Sure Robinson has looked good, but Teague scares me. And to think I was a proponent of Teague getting significant time this year.
