The Scoop:He was doubtful for this one and had almost no chance to play. Noah could miss more time and the Bulls are not going to rush him back considering they have such great depth behind him. Taj Gibson will start and is a must-start play while Nikola Mirotic will also get more run.
The Scoop:He has missed the Bulls last two games, and he appears likely to sit this one out as well. Noah said on Friday that his ankle is showing signs of improvement, but knowing the Bulls they will probably proceed with extreme caution. Owners should have a backup plan ready and we expect Taj Gibson to start and play big minutes if Noah sits. Nikola Mirotic would also continue to have a good role off of the bench and could be a sneaky plug-and-play.
