Noah "most likely" out for Game 5 vs. Sixers

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Joakim Noah will "most likely," be out of Tuesday night's Game 5 with a twisted ankle. Thibodeau said his injured center was walking around some on his left ankle Monday.

Derrick Rose visited his teammates at the team's training facility Monday. Surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee has yet to be scheduled. The Bulls medical team wants to eliminate the fluid and swelling Rose's knee while also having him do some strengthening exercises before having surgery. It is hoped that will help him recover from the surgery quicker.

"There still working through things," Thibodeau said. "He's coming along well. He's doing a lot of rehab and feels pretty good. That's encouraging."

Luol Deng aggravated the torn ligament in his left wrist during the first quarter of Sunday's loss but practiced Monday.

"He's doing fine," Thibodeau said of Deng. "He's been dealing with this all season. It's not anything new. Some days are better than others. He just needs to keep plugging away."
