Chicago Bulls injury report: Joakim Noah says he'll play vs. Knicks

So while it's nice for us to get a rest between Bulls games (isn't it?), the Bulls have to 'practice fully'.  Fortunately that includes Joakim Noah now. FWIW: Bulls just released injury update for the day listing Noah and Gibson (right ankle) as questionable vs. NYK. Noah said he'll play. — Nick Friedell (@NickFriedell) December 17, 2014 On the less-than-fortunate side of the ledger, that Taj Gibson ankle injury is indeed new. He missed substantial time with a left ankle sprain, then came back and played 18 and 31 minutes. Then over 44 against Portland, followed by a back-to-back...

He's doing more on the floor now, running, jumping, stuff like that.

Noah, Gasol, two others held from practice

CHICAGO -- Bulls big men Pau Gasol (shoulder/chest) and Joakim Noah (knee/ankle), along with second-year swingman Tony Snell (personal reasons) and rookie Doug McDermott (knee), did not practice on Thursday.

Bulls injury report: Noah sits out practice

It's not just BlogABull: the Bulls are in a bit of a break right this week! After failing to beat what may be a really incredible team from Golden State, the Bulls stayed home with only 1 game in the next 6 days. And that game is against a cruddy Eastern Conference team they just beat up a couple weeks ago. A team, the Brooklyn Nets, who should be even cruddier than usual: Joe Johnson (illness), Brook Lopez (back), AK-47 (who knows) will all be out for them. Mirza Teletovic is questionable. All the more reason to, for the love of playoff chances, rest Joakim Noah already: Noah held out of...

Video: Kevin Garnett says he did not try to bite Joakim Noah, gives Mike Tyson a shout out

In the Brooklyn Nets 102-84 loss to the Chicago Bulls, there was a moment in which it looked as if Kevin Garnett playfully tried to bite Joakim Noah. After the game, Garnett spoke to the media and said that, yes, he was just playing around. He did not try to bite Noah, because if he did want to bite him, well, he could have.
