Chicago Bulls coach Tim Thibodeau has said that Joakim Noah will be a game time decision for tonight’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Noah sprained his left ankle in game 3 (Don’t look for the video or any photos; it’s awful. What was even worse the 76ers fans applauding Noah’s injury) and missed game 4 shot some free throws without a brace this morning.
Thibs said that Noah will likely not play, but things can change by game time.
While it sucks to see Noah on the sidelines, you don’t want to see him rush back and potentially run the risk of sustaining another injury or doing further damage to the injury. It’s the playoffs and players sacrifice their bodies and play through the pain to achieve glory.
