The Chicago Bulls will face the Indiana Pacers in their final preseason contest of the season Friday at 7:00 p.m. ET.
The Bulls who will travel to South Bend, Indiana will have questions surrounding point guard Kirk Hinrich, who is a game-time decision.
Hinrich, who strained his groin in the first half against the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday, did some light shooting drills and rode a stationary bike during the teams Thursday's afternoon practice.

"(Hinrich's) a little better, but didn't do much today," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Just spot shooting for him. Game-time (decision). We'll see."
Though there isn't much concern that Hinrich will miss much time, a groin injury can nag a player for sometimes entire season, and that can be a problem for the Bulls as Hinrich was supposed to keep things steady while Derrick Rose recovers from his torn ACL injury.
Hinrich, who was signed as a free agent this summer, has missed 28 games the past two seasons because of various injuries. He already missed one preseason game because of a thumb injury.
If Hinrich is ruled out of Friday's contest, expect for backup guard Nate Robinson to see quality minutes as he'll more than likely start in his place.
