Thibodeau on Bulls injury updates, red-hot Spurs
DEERFIELD, ILL. — Joakim Noah is a game-time decision for Monday evening’s game against San Antonio at the United Center, according to Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau.
“We held him out of most of it. Did the walk-through part, did a little bit of shooting,” Thibodeau said of the All-Star center, following the team’s morning shootaround at the Berto Center. “He’s had it before, so we’ll see how it goes. He’s fine.”
Noah, who is suffering from plantar fasciitis in his right foot, did extensive shooting after the session.
Starting point guard Kirk Hinrich will miss his sixth consecutive game due to a right-elbow injury, said Thibodeau.
Backup shooting guard Marco Belinelli, who injured his right ankle last week and missed Thursday’s blowout defeat in Denver, will be available Monday.
