Kirk Hinrich Injury: Hawks Guard Looking For Wednesday Return In San Antonio

Injured Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich said before Monday's game that he is hoping to make his season debut in Wednesday's game against San Antonio. Hinrich will go through a full contact practice on Tuesday and if there are no setbacks will be cleared to play on Wednesday.

Hinrich missed the first 18 games of the season after having off season surgery on his left shoulder. As was expected, Hinrich will come off the bench once he returns to the active roster and Hawks coach Larry Drew indicated that Jeff Teague would remain the starter at point guard.

"At this point, I am going to stay with that I have," Drew said. "Jeff has shown that he deserves it. He has done a really good job for us. As of right now, I am just going to keep it as is."
