NBA Playoffs: Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets, Joakim Noah Good To Go, Derrick Rose Out


Some good (and bad) news for the Chicago Bulls fans – Joakim Noah is good to go and should play between 20-25 minutes in game 3 on Thursday. Noah has been struggling with a foot injury and has not quite been himself, but he played quite well in game 2 and propelled the Bulls to a victory.

While Noah will be ready for the playoff opener in Chicago, Derrick Rose is once again ruled out. Many people doubt whether Rose will bother getting back on the court this year, even though he has been medically cleared to play.

The first-round series between the Brooklyn Nets and the Bulls are tied at one a piece.
