Bulls get Jimmy Butler back, clinch playoff berth

With two answers, one short and one strong, Joakim Noah summarized the state of the Bulls, who clinched their seventh straight playoff berth Monday with a 98-86 victory over the Hornets.

Noah gets an assist from Hulk Hogan

CHICAGO -- Joakim Noah used a little Hulkamania power to help promote his foundation's "Rock Your Drop" Campaign on Sunday. Noah, appearing at a collectibles show in Rosemont, Ill., on Sunday, taped a short video with Hulk Hogan to spread the word about what his Noah's Arc Foundation is trying to do to prevent gun violence. Noah's mother, Cecilia Rodhe, a sculptor, crafted a necklace that the Foundation says is, "meant to be worn as a sign of connectivity and to visibly express a sense of belonging and togetherness in one's community.

Bulls disappear down stretch in Detroit

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- After watching his team finish off a disappointing 107-91 loss to the Detroit Pistons in which game the Chicago Bulls were on the wrong side of a 54-19 run to close the game, Bulls center Joakim Noah summed up the game nicely on Saturday night. "We just," Noah began, trying to find the right words. "We sucked down the stretch." The understatement of the night came in the middle of a shell-shocked visitor's locker room as Noah and his teammates iced their aching bodies.

Noah impresses with passing acumen

CHICAGO -- Nikola Mirotic didn't need any help. When the Bulls' star rookie was asked after Friday night's impressive 108-92 win over the Toronto Raptors how many assists his teammate, Joakim Noah, dished out, Mirotic was ready. "Fourteen," he said. "That's awesome." Mirotic may very well be the hottest player in the league not named Russell Westbrook this month, but the 24 year-old knows that Noah is the engine that drives the Bulls' car on and off the floor.

Thibs addresses Noah's minutes limit again

CHICAGO -- Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau remains frustrated by the fact that Joakim Noah remains on a 32-minutes-a-game minutes restriction, but the veteran coach says he will stick with the directive given to him from the Bulls' front office. "You go into the game and you know, these are the times that you're going to sub him," Thibodeau said. "If you go back, it's basically the same time every game. Sometimes you hit overtime, that changes things, and so you try and get him out.

Noah (left knee) expects to play vs. Hornets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Joakim Noah expects to play Friday night against the Charlotte Hornets after missing Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers because of left knee soreness. Noah was in good spirits before Friday's shootaround and says his knee is feeling better. "It feels good," Noah said. "Just do shootaround and see how it feels today."

After getting rest and treatment the last couple days, he expects to be out there against a Hornets team that is expected to be without Al Jefferson (calf...

Bulls vs. Sixers final score: extra-extra depleted Bulls require OT to beat Philly

and it was never spoken of again. Joakim Noah was a late scratch before this game, and for the love of all that is holy let's hope it was indeed just a rest day, and not the kind of 'soreness' that means surgery the next day. Because this was indeed the game to rest from. I wish I had! The Sixers are a joke, but the Bulls without Noah+Rose+Butler+Gibson isn't too far behind, with the Sixers getting the helper factors of more rest and a home game as well. But still, man, needing overtime to beat this D(plus?)-league team still smarted a bit. The first half featured a heavy diet of Pau Gasol...

Chicago Bulls vs. Memphis Grizzlies game preview, injury report, lineups

[Thanks to Jeff for today's game preview -yfbb] As the Memphis Grizzlies, the current #2 seed in the West, roll into the United Center tonight, it’s important, given recent circumstances, to digest what exactly has happened to the Bulls during the last 21 games. Just when you thought the season couldn’t get any weirder, it has. Early in the season it was the loss of Noah and Dunleavy to injuries for extended periods of time that hurt the team flow. It was the "will he or won’t he" play from Rose, then once we found out he would play, it was the "will he or won’t he"...

Mirotic emerging at the right time for Bulls

CHICAGO -- Chicago Bulls big man Joakim Noah walked out of the shower late Thursday night after an exhilarting 108-105 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, headed back toward his locker, and saw rookie forward Nikola Mirotic to his left. "Vamos!" he happily exclaims. "Good sh--, young boy!" Like many of his teammates, Noah couldn't contain his excitement, especially in regard to Mirotic's performance. For the third straight game, Mirotic carried the Bulls at times offensively.

Bulls' Noah takes on gun violence issue

CHICAGO -- Joakim Noah stood in front of reporters after Wednesday's practice and was ready to answer questions before it dawned on him that he had forgotten something. He ambled back into the Chicago Bulls' locker room at Advocate Center and reappeared a few minutes later with "The Drop." That would be a necklace that his mother Cecilia Rodhe, a sculptor, designed. "The Drop" as his Noah's Arc Foundation puts it, is "meant to be worn as a sign of connectivity and to visibly express a sense of belonging and togetherness in one's community.

Six observations from a Bulls-Wizards Re-Watch

In this installment of The Re-Watch, we take a look at what works (and what doesn't) with Point Noah. Chicago defeated the reeling Washington Wizards 97-92 last night. It wasn't pretty, but it was pretty fun. It was a game that featured everything a modern NBA rivalry should -- flagrant fouls, tough talk on the court and in the media, late game drama -- yep, it was all there. Bulls-Wizards, by today's standards, is probably the best ongoing rivalry in the NBA. But if not, then at the very least, the dynamic between Nenê and Joakim Noah is the best player rivalry in the game today. Without...
