Hinrich, who strained his groin in the first half against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday, did some light shooting and rode a stationary bike during Thursday afternoon's 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."
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 he doesn't play Friday against the Pacers, Nate Robinson will likely get the bulk of his minutes.
