Description: Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said forward Joakim Noah is expected to play on Wednesday versus the Raptors according to ESPN Chicago.
Insight: Taj Gibson will move to the bench if Noah does indeed play, but by no means is Noah a shoe-in to play. Chicago is very, very cautious with their stars. Nikola Mirotic will also see fewer minutes with Noah starting, but the rookie has been so good, it's hard to sit him.

Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah will not play on Monday due to general soreness according to Comcast SportsNet Chicago.
Insight: It's a bit ironic that Jimmy Butler is returning Monday, but Noah is going to sit although Noah is probably just resting. Taj Gibson is likely going to start, but Nikola Mirotic is the best fantasy play.
 
3/16/2015 9:57:00 AM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah (knee) is still under a minutes cap, according to a Chicago Tribune report.
Insight: Noah returned after missing a game against Philadelphia, but sat for most of the fourth quarter in Sunday's loss to OKC. The minutes limit appears to be between 30-32 minutes per game. He can still be a decent value under those constraints, but has a limited upside.

3/11/2015 5:48:00 PM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah (knee) will not play Wednesday against Philadelphia.
Insight: This is probably a mix of letting him heal, along with a chance to rest against a lousy team. Noah should be back in action next time out. Nikola Mirotic will see an even bigger bump in value.

Hot1/30/2015 9:27:00 AM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah nearly triple-doubled in Los Angeles Thursday night, pulling down 17 rebounds to go along with nine assists, nine points and blocked shot.
Insight: Noah isn't scoring a lot, but he's trying to help his team and fantasy owners in other ways, That's back-to-back big games and we like the direction he's headed now that he's healthy again.

Insight: Owners have been waiting for this, as Noah went 7-of-12 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line for 18 points, 15 rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two turnovers. Hopefully he is now fully healthy, and can continue to produce these type of numbers.

Insight: Noah finished with four points, five rebounds, two assists and two blocks. Coach Tom Thibodeau said after the game that he liked the group that started the fourth quarter, so Noah stayed on the bench. Thibodeau said Noah was healthy, but he did want to watch his minutes.

Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah (knee) missed Thursday's game versus the Spurs and is questionable for Friday's game against Dallas.
Insight: Noah, who has missed four straight games, is very close to returning. Taj Gibson starts at power forward with Pau Gasol moving to the middle if Noah sits again on Friday.
