Found October 21, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Nick Friedell of  ESPNChicago.com reported that Chicago Bulls’ guard Kirk Hinrich suffered a concussion during Friday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers.  He’s expected to miss a couple of days, according to coach Tom Thibodeau.  Hinrich first has to cleared under the NBA concussion policy in order to return. “He’s out. He has a concussion,” Thibodeau said after Saturday’s practice. “Not sure (how long he’ll be out). Probably a couple days.” “The league protocol, he’ll have to go through a series of tests,” Thibodeau said. “Make sure he’s OK. He said he was feeling a lot better today.” The Bulls have been hampered with injuries during preseason. Besides Hinrich, forward Jimmy Butler is out with knee problems and center Joakim Noah was shut down on Friday with a groin injury.  Thibodeau was hopeful that Hinrich would be back before the end of the preseason.  On a positive note, Derrick Rose is ready to play after missing all of last season with a knee injury. Hinrich, a 10-year veteran, played and started 60 games last season with the Bulls. He averaged 7.7 points and 5.2 assists per game.  His career averages are 12.1 points and 5.4 assists per game.
