Noah Out For Up To 10 Weeks

December 16, 2010

Just when the Bulls were at full strength and everything was fine this happens. Joakim Noah is out and now Carlos Boozer and Derrick Rose have to pick up the load again. Taj Gibson fantasy owners are happy though.

From Chicago Tribune:

TORONTO — Joakim Noah is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right thumb, two team sources told the Tribune.

The Bulls’ starting center could be sidelined for up to 10 weeks.

Noah played with the injury Wednesday night against the Raptors after team physicians determined he could do no further damage to the injury.

Noah first got whacked on the thumb in late November and then aggravated the injury in early December. He has been playing with his hand taped at times.

The Tribune first reported the severity of Noah’s injury late Tuesday. The determination for surgery was made Wednesday.

There is still a small chance the surgery could be delayed. But at this point, the Bulls are scheduled to announce the surgery on Thursday.

Noah declined comment before the game.
