BOSTONAfter straining his right hamstring with 1:56 remaining in the third quarter of the Bulls overtime win Friday night over the Celtics, Luol Dengs status is up in the air for Saturday evenings matchup with Memphis at the United Center.

I got a fast break, Jo threw the ball. Just tried to take off and I just feltas soon as I got the ball, as soon I pushed offI just felt a pull, he said about the injury, a re-aggravation from Wednesday nights overtime win in Toronto, in which he briefly exited the contest in the opening period, but quickly returned and hit the game-winning shot. Its just swelling. Its painful. In the hallway, I tried to run and tried to go back in the game for my teammates, but I couldnt. I had a hard time running, he said. I dont know yet. Well see tomorrow. Well see in the morning.

I dont percentage out very well.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau was also unsure about whether Deng would play against the Grizzlies in Chicago.

Bulls trainer Fred Tedeschi has got to have him examined. He wanted to come back, but he was not able to do it. Well see where he is, said the coach. Weve got to wait until the doctor examines him.

The NBA announced Saturday that it has suspended former Bulls and current Knicks center Joakim Noah for 20 games without pay for violating the league's anti-drug policy.

He tested positive for an over-the-counter supplement called selective androgen receptor modulator LGD-4033, which is prohibited under the current collective bargaining agreement but would not have been under the new CBA starting next year, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

It was announced in February that Noah would miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury. His suspension will carry over into the 2017-18 campaign with only 10 games left this year.

Noah averaged 5.0 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game in 46 games in his first of a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks.
