November 30, 2009 -- Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich
was examined this morning by Bulls head team physician Dr. Brian Cole
and hand specialists Dr. John Fernandez and Dr. Marc Cohen of Midwest
Orthopedics at Rush University. Their examination confirmed the earlier
diagnosis of a left thumb sprain. He is expected to miss 1-2 weeks.
Well, it beats something considerably worse, but the Bulls are going to struggle with Hinrich out for that long.
I don't think this is a long enough absence that they bring in anyone else on to the roster though.
