Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau thinks Kirk Hinrich (foot) and Taj Gibson (sprained MCL) will both play Thursday night against the Blazers.
Both players hoped to return tonight despite being labeled game-time decisions. Assuming there are no hiccups during pregame warmups, it looks like Hinrich and Gibson will get their wish. Gibson would come off the bench if active while Hinrich would get his usual spot as the starting point guard. We'll update you as soon as we get official word.
