Kirk Hinrich Fantasy Ownership Skyrockets with Derrick Rose Out for Season
Well, that was fast. With the news that Bulls guard Derrick Rose is out for the season after knee surgery, comes this:
Ownership of Kirk Hinrich up 22.6 percent in ESPN fantasy basketball. Sad reality of Rose injury news.

The fantasy hounds are flocking to Rose’s backup, a 10-year veteran who’s averaged 12.1 points per game in his career. And while he’s a longshot to match Rose’s production, he does wear these sweet glasses and makes 80 percent of his free throws.
You just know some of those people were super psyched to get Hinrich first. Fantasy sports: getting people pumped for player injuries since 1980.
