Recommendation: The contusion to Hinrich's left calf remains painful enough to hold him out of drills, which does not bode well for his availability Thursday's Game 6 against Brooklyn. In the meantime, he has removed his walking boot but will have to improve significantly in order to take the court, meaning another start at point guard is in store for Nate Robinson. Consider Hinrich a true game-time call Thursday.
