Bulls center Joakim Noah is expected to return Thursday against the Denver Nuggets.
Noah hasn't played since January 30, missing three games with plantar fasciitis. He's averaging 38.6 minutes a game on the season. I'm a bit worried that Noah is a) coming back too soon and b) going to get run into the ground by Tom Thibodeau. Hopefully, Noah is healthy enough to return and Thibodeau takes it easy on his big man.
Thibodeau said Noah is a go vs. Nuggets. Belinelli still gametime, didn't participate in shootaround. I'd guess out. #Bulls
