Here is the official release from team PR:

Veteran Guard Listed as Doubtful for Hawks vs. Bulls Series

ATLANTA, GA – A magnetic resonance imaging test (MRI) taken today revealed that Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich suffered a significant strain to his right hamstring with 3:07 remaining in last night’s series-clinching game six win over Orlando, according to head athletic trainer Wally Blase. Hinrich is listed as doubtful for the Eastern Conference Semifinals series vs. Chicago, which begins on Monday.

Jamal Crawford spoke to the media today before the team had received word of the MRI results. This is what he had to say:
It’s tough. Kirk is the head of our defense. He’s the guy who’s making things happen from the start… He knows their players as well as anybody. He was there seven years, so he can definitely give us some insight. He’ll definitely be traveling, I think, either way. We’ll definitely be picking his brains during timeouts and stuff.
