Joakim Noah said he will try to play against the Nuggets on Thursday night after missing three games with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
"I'll be all right," he said.
That's good new for the Bulls. Not only have the Nuggets won seven straight but they are one of the top rebounding teams in the league.
"Rebounding is such a big component," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "They're so quick to the board, so it requires a multiple-effort mentality. You can never relax. We're going to have to finish our defense, keep the ball out of the paint, challenge shots, rebound. But then we have to execute offensively."
Thibodeau said Noah and Marco Belinelli, who twisted his ankle against the Pacers on Monday night, will be game-time decisions.
Belinelli didn't do much in practice on Wednesday, Thibodeau said.
Carlos Boozer has recovered from a hamstring injury and will play. Kirk Hinrich (elbow) didn't make the trip to Denver.
