Joakim Noah logged 35 minutes off the bench in Wednesday’s win over the Nuggets, scoring nine points on 3-of-5 shooting with 11 rebounds, one assist and four blocks.
Noah has seen a mini-resurgence but the real news here is that Nikola Mirotic played just five minutes due to a concussion. He hasn’t been a good fit for this Bulls squad in the general sense, but Mirotic hasn’t exactly locked down a massive role so he may get a shot to advance his own cause this week. Noah also has plenty of injury risk and plenty of reasons to doubt that he can take any time missed by Mirotic and turn it into sustainable value. Still, give him a hard look if you need a big man.
