Rose, Noah to play vs. Sixers

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

PHILADELPHIA -- Point guard Derrick Rose (sprained left wrist) and center Joakim Noah will see action tonight when the Bulls face the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wachovia Center.

Rose will be in the starting lineup and has no limitations on his minutes. Noah, though, will be limited to about 10 minutes in the game.

"Let's see how he does tonight," Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said of Noah. "He's limited to 10 minutes -- around 10 minutes, nine, 11, something around 10 - and we'll see how he feels and get him some therapy and rest and see how his foot reacts.

"Hopefully, we'll get him ready for Monday [against Houston]."

What is Vinnie's reasons for not playing Acie Law much, if at all, in the last two games (Cavs & 76ers)? My thoughts are: I know Acie's defense is suspect at best; however, playing Pargo over this kid, to me, makes no sense. Pargo's defense is just as bad and he has had 69 games and practices to show something and he has not. Who's to believe, at this point, he will suddenly turn it around? So, Pargo will not be here next year, so why not try to see what you have in a former lottery pick that might be able to help next year? Makes sense, so the only other rationale is that when the media asked Vinnie about more playing time for Acie Law after two good scoring games, Vinnie buried the guy on the bench. Shades of TT being buried after Vinnie was asked about starting him after three excellent games back from his broken arm. Vinnie seems to not like being asked those questions and is taking it as second guessing. So, he seems to be sending a message to the media by screwing with certain players. What's up with that?
