The Chicago Bulls missed Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer and Kirk Hinrich in Friday's loss to the Brooklyn Nets. Noah was out with plantar fasciitis, and he's not sure when he'll be back. Boozer sat with a hamstring injury. An injured elbow kept Hinrich out.  Taj Gibson was huge with 16 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 48 minutes. He is a must pickup with Noah and Boozer out )and even with just one of them out). Jimmy Butler played 40 minutes, scored 12 points, grabbed six rebounds, dished three assists and stole two balls. He's a must-own player (21 percent owned in Yahoo) at this point. Rip Hamilton played just 17 minutes. Noah (foot) Boozer ( hamstring) ....we 'll know more at tipHinrich no go-elbow — chuck swirsky (@swirsk054) February 1, 2013 Noah has plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He had it in his left foot three years ago. He isn't sure when he will return to the lineup. — Nick Friedell (@NickFriedell) February 2, 2013
