Hinrich (groin) game-time call vs. Pacers

By Nick Friedell

DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich is a game-time decision for Friday's preseason finale against the Indiana Pacers in South Bend, Ind.

Hinrich, who strained his groin in the first half against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday, did some light shooting and rode a stationary bike during Thursday afternoon's practice.

"(Hinrich's) a little better, but didn't do much today," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Just spot shooting for him. Game-time (decision). We'll see."

Hinrich, who was signed as a free agent this summer, has missed 28 games the past two seasons because of various injuries. He already missed one preseason game because of a thumb injury.

If he doesn't play Friday against the Pacers, Nate Robinson will likely get the bulk of his minutes.
