Joakim Noah was forced to leave the Chicago Bulls’ bench on Monday and told to change his clothes because his wardrobe was not up to league code, ESPN Chicago reports. Noah has been out the past three games because of plantar fasciitis in his right foot, but he still wanted to sit on the team’s bench to support his teammates during their 111-101 loss at Indiana. The All-Star center was wearing a V-neck shirt, sweater, jacket, and jeans before being asked to change. Noah left the court during the second quarter. When he returned for the second half, he was wearing a striped collared shirt under a blue blazer. Noah told ESPN’s Nick Friedell after the game that the outfit wasn’t his style. “That’s not really my style,” he said. “But I want to be out there with my guys.” You can’t say that he doesn’t sacrifice for the team. You know, if Noah had just shown up to the game dressed like this, there wouldn’t have even been a problem. Photo via @beyondthebuzzer The post Joakim Noah forced

At 98-94 with under 2 minutes to go, the undermanned Bulls seemed to be gaining momentum on Monday night until a 50/50 ball flew out of bounds and the refs called Indiana ball without hesitation and oddly refused to review the play, drawing criticism from the visiting locker room who ultimately succumbed 111-101.
According to CSN Chicago:
“What’s the rule? Under two minutes,...
His numbers don’t speak volumes, 7 points and 5 assists per game, but Kirk Hinrich is the Chicago Bulls’ floor general on both sides of the ball with Derrick Rose sidelined – and he will join Rose in the training room for games for at least one week with an elbow infection that flared up from a previous injury last month.
