Joakim Noah was benched for the entire fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Heat, finishing the game with four points, five rebounds, two assists, and two blocks.
The Scoop: Head coach Tom Thibodeau said he liked the group that started the fourth quarter, and that is the reason why Joakim did not re-enter the game. Thibodeau maintained that Joakim is healthy, and he just wanted to watch his minutes, but with the result being an L in the win-loss column, this will not likely be a trend that continues. Look for Noah to bounce-back during Tuesday's game vs. Golden State.
