The Chicago Bulls feel like a team made from paper mache.  They are without their star, Derrick Rose, and have simply been trying to keep from crumbling before our eyes.  Those attempts took a shot Saturday as two players were injured.  The extent of those injuries became a little more clear yesterday. For the second time this season, Kirk Hinrich is battling an injury that may keep him off the court.  Hinrich strained his right hip in Chicago's 87-80 win last night over the Minnesota Timberwolves.  Joakim Noah also suffered a minor laceration on his knee, but was able to return to the game.  There is no doubt Hinrich's injury is more serious.According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Hinrich underwent an MRI yesterday to determine the extent of the damage to his hip, but for now the team is calling it a strain.  To top things off, Hinrich also strained his hamstring in the game.Noah suffered his laceration in the first quarter, but the injury didn't seem to affect him much.  He returned to the game and scored 17 points.  Kirk Hinrich was not as fortunate. Hinrich suffered his injuries in the second quarter of the game and did not return.  The results of Hinrich's MRI were not immediately known, but he has said the injury is more toward his hamstring area.  He will likely not be available today against the Celtics. Noah, who should play tonight, has averaged 15.0 points per game and 3.3 rebounds per game this season.  Hinrich has averaged 5.7 points per game and 5.0 assists per game.  Nate Robinson will likely fill in for Hinrich if he can't go.
