Found November 19, 2012 on NBA Injury News:
Kirk Hinrich has been part of the Chicago Bull's fraternity of injured players.  He had strained a glute/groin muscle, and only recently has he made his return.  Despite the injury and his poor shooting so far this season, though, Hinrich is not concerned.According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Hinrich understands the sample size is far too small to start worrying.  Hinrich is shooting just 29.6% from the floor this season - and that's with a poor 2 for 6 night that actually improved his shooting percentage."It's such a small sample size," Hinrich said. "Most games, I really don't know if I have it going or not because I'm taking so few shots. I'm not worried. I still feel like I'm shooting it good in practice."Hinrich has averaged just six shot attempts per game so far this season.  With Derek Rose out, the Bulls need every scoring threat they can get.  That could mean Hinrich needs to shoot more, but right now he is still just trying to get into the swing of things. Hinrich was drafted seventh overall in 2003 out of Kansas.  He has played ten NBA seasons with three different teams.  He was drafted by the Bulls and spent most of his time with them.  However, Hinrich played for both the Washington Wizards and the Atlanta Hawks over the course of two seasons before returning to Chicago this year. In his career, Hinrich has averaged 12.4 points per game.  He has also averaged 41.7% shooting from the floor.  He is right, this season so far is a small sample size.  If history is any indicator, he will heat up.
