Hinrich status still uncertain

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Kirk Hinrich didn't practice Saturday because of a sprained left thumb. Exactly how long the veteran guard will be sidelined is unclear at this point.

"There's a mild to moderate sprain of the ligament in his thumb, so he's gonna see the specialist on Monday and then we'll have a better evaluation," coach Vinny Del Negro said.

When asked if Hinrich was definitely out of Monday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Del Negro said: "Not definitely. We'll see what the doctor says on Monday and get the evaluation and see how [Hinrich] feels."

Hinrich suffered the injury during practice Wednesday in Portland. He was examined on Friday by a team physician and the initial diagnosis is the ligament is still attached.

He missed 31 games last season with a torn ligament in his right thumb that required surgery.
