Kirk Hinrich suffered a minor elbow injury on Saturday against the Knicks, but he will play on Tuesday against the Clippers.
Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich suffered a mysterious left elbow injury against the Knicks on Saturday, and was listed as day-to-day afterward. Nobody seemed to be really sure when Hinrich suffered the injury, but there was Nate Robinson starting the second half in his place.
Anyway, there were some questions about whether Hinrich would play on Tuesday against the Clippers, but those have been put to rest. Hinrich practiced on Monday and is officially in for the game against the Clippers. CSN Chicago's Aggrey Sam had a little more information on the injury as well:
Kirk called his elbow injury a sprain/hyperextension, says he was fine today— Aggrey Sam (@CSNBullsInsider) December 10, 2012
I figured the injury was nothing, but it still is annoying/somewhat disturbing to see all these little things add up. It seems like there's something new every other week with Kirk. Hopefully this doesn't continue to bother him, because Hinrich was actually starting to play better. And the Bulls need all the help they can get against the Clippers, who demolished the Bulls last month.
