Joakim Noah blows up for 18/15/6 vs. Warriors - Joakim Noah (F/C) Chicago Bulls

The Bulls shocked the Warriors in California on Tuesday, aided by Joakim Noah's 18 points (7-of-12 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), 15 rebounds, six assists and two steals.

Joakim Noah, Bulls embrace winning path

DALLAS -- Joakim Noah knew his team was stuck at a gigantic fork in the road. After another embarrassing defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night, the Bulls' sixth in their last eight games, the emotional center knew his team's entire season was headed in the wrong direction. The Bulls weren't fighting hard together, they weren't communicating enough on the floor and the hard-nosed defense which had defined them over the past four years went missing.

Getting Noah, Dunleavy back the answer?

CHICAGO -- Tom Thibodeau has held to a firm belief over the last few weeks amidst one of the worst stretches of his five-year tenure in Chicago. The belief being that once injured starters Joakim Noah (ankle/knee) and Mike Dunleavy (ankle) come back to the lineup, the Bulls should start racking up wins again after losing six of eight games over the last two weeks. Thibodeau has a point -- the Bulls are 12-3 in the games that Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol, Noah and Dunleavy play in together.

Noah out, Dunleavy game-time call vs. Spurs

CHICAGO -- Joakim Noah will miss his fourth straight game Thursday night against the San Antonio Spurs because of a right ankle injury. Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said the All-Star center went through a portion of the team's shootaround, but is not ready to play yet. The good news for the Bulls is that Noah, who took extra shots after practice, appears close to a return. Bulls guard Mike Dunleavy, who has missed the last 10 games because of an ankle injury, is a game-time decision against the Spurs.

Jimmy Butler: “If I didn’t have [Joakim Noah] on my team I would hate him”; understands why Kevin Garnett doesn’t like Noah

Joakim Noah didn’t play in Friday’s win over the Celtics, but he still managed to find his way into the box score with a technical foul in street clothes from the bench. The call sparked one of the loudest ovations of the night from the TD Garden crowd — a fan base that has despised […]

TD Garden grows on Jaokim Noah

TD Garden grows on Jaokim Noah

There’s something about walking down the player tunnel and into the Garden that still makes Joakim Noah smile as if it’s 2009, and the start of his first NBA playoff series.There was latent hostility in the stands and Kendrick Perkins with his game-night scowl waiting on the floor. Kevin Garnett was out with a knee injury, but more than any other great player Noah faced in those early years, the C’s forward’s abrasive nature eventually influenced the Bulls center’s own attitude about opponents.

Bulls finally close out a bad team late

BOSTON -- Joakim Noah stood towards the back of the visitor's locker room in the TD Garden late Friday night with an embarrassed smile on his face. Noah, the emotional leader of the Chicago Bulls who sat out Friday night's 119-103 win over the Boston Celtics because of a sprained right ankle, earned a rare NBA distinction during the game. With 4:33 left in the third quarter of a tight game, Noah picked up a technical foul for arguing with the officials.

Joakim Noah injury: ankle sprain has Noah out for the weekend

Joakim Noah is officially out for tonight's game in Boston, with the sprained ankle he suffered at the end of the first half against Washington. Thibodeau also mentioned an MRI to take place tomorrow, so we should probably assume he'll be out for that night's big showdown against the Hawks. Noah, of course, has been battling injury (or at least recovery) all season. An offseason 'minor' procedure may have well been a meniscus tear, and he's not had the same mobility (at least on a sustained level) he did last season, a huge factor in what makes him a great player. Joakim also has had some...

Bulls vs. Wizards recap: Rose threes can't compensate for Wizards bigs

As I said in the preview for this game, I was anticipating the Bulls bouncing back from their latest struggles in this matchup against Washington. It was a rival who they'd just lost to, and Thibs was all over them after some of their debacles lately. But the Wizards are talented and a problem of a matchup, so even an uptick in 'energy' wouldn't be enough in and of itself. And it turned out that way. I thought that the Bulls started out the game just fine, with Joakim Noah looking especially bounce-y and active. But at halftime the Wizards still managed to have over 38% of the offensive...

Chicago Bulls vs. Washington Wizards game preview, injury report, lineups

This is kind of an important test tonight. The Bulls have been playing quite poorly lately, but it remains to be seen if that's just a part-of-82-games blip or if they're really in long rut heading into a pretty tough portion of the schedule. Because they have a lot of interesting circumstances for tonight's game against the Wizards: Thibs was angry after Monday's loss to Orlando. While we can't be sure if the message got totally across, given this humorous response from Joakim Noah, the coach and team all seem back on track after a Tuesday practice. If the problem really is an issue of...

Noah trying to smooth his bumpy ride

CHICAGO – Now 2½ months into a season that followed knee surgery over the summer, Joakim Noah continues to work himself toward full strength. He hasn’t been a liability this season, but he clearly has been at his best either, and while his repaired left knee seems to be the obviously culprit, Noah refuses to make any excuses. “It's good; I've just got to keep working, keep getting after it,” Noah said after participating in a full practice Tuesday.

Rose, Noah held out of Bulls practice

CHICAGO – Neither Derrick Rose nor Joakim Noah participated in practice for the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday, but both are expected to be available for Wednesday’s game against the Utah Jazz. Coach Tom Thobodeau said both players were “sore” and offered little details. Asked if Rose was dealing with a sore hip, Thibodeau said, “it’s a little better today.” Noah, who is coming off knee surgery in the offseason and was not included in the team's injury report.

Bulls having fun with their new 'versatility'

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls beat the Houston Rockets at their own game on Monday night and that should be a terrifying thought for the rest of the NBA. They raced up and down the floor all night, going shot for shot with one of the best teams in the Western Conference, but they still managed to find ways to make key defensive stops when they needed them late. "It shows the versatility of this ballclub," Bulls center Joakim Noah said. "There's a lot of talent.
