CHICAGO (AP)—Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich needs surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb and will miss up to three months.

The injury occurred during Chicago’s 100-83 victory over Phoenix on Friday.

Hinrich, making his first start, was injured in the third quarter and left the game with five points, five assists and five steals. The Bulls initially called it a sprain, but an exam before Saturday night’s game against Cleveland revealed a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

The surgery is scheduled for Tuesday.

In his sixth season, Hinrich is averaging 8.3 points and 4.0 assists. The Bulls drafted Derrick Rose with the No. 1 pick, and Thabo Sefolosha started the first five games at shooting guard with Hinrich in a reserve role. But coach Vinny Del Negro juggled the lineup on Friday, with Hinrich replacing the struggling Sefolosha.

Rose will be getting huge minutes now. He for sure is in the middle of ROY with Beasley at this point.

He was already in the middle of it WITH Hinrich. I think he is pretty much the favorite now to win it with Oden out. Sure Beasley is still in the race, but he has to split time with people unlike Rose now.

Rose has looked good so far, let's see what he can do in full time. Either way, I think he will win ROY because he'll be getting the most time

I don't see this injury effecting Rose at all. He's leading the Bulls team in minutes, so I wouldn't expect his workload to increase from what it is right now. Guy's like Ben Gordon and Thabo Selfelosha will be the guy's who see an increase in minutes.

Damn remember this summer when people were saying the Bulls needed trade one or two of there guards because they had so many? Now look at them. Now think if they would have drafted Beasly like alot of people say they should have. They would really be screwed. At least now they get to develop there PG of the future.

as long as Rose does not hit Rookie Wall until he is back, it can be good for him.

Bad bussines wise for chicago who were thinking some package to buy a Big Man.

Hinrich is overrated and a piece of *****. Rose will take adavantage of this and will shine with Hughes and Gordon playing by his side.
