Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich is aiming to make his season debut on Wednesday in San Antonio. Hinrich has missed the Hawks first 18 games of the season after having off season surgery on his left shoulder. Hinrich will go through a full contact practice on Tuesday and if there are no complications he will then be cleared to play on Wednesday.

When talking about Hinrich's return Larry Drew indicated that the team would bring him along slowly to start with. He also added that Jeff Teague would remain the starting point guard and that Hinrich would come off the bench.
"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."
