After 13 mainly ineffective minutes on Saturday at the Barclays Center, Noah immediately said that he would play in the series' 2nd game, but it's anyone's guess how effective he'll be. From Noah, via the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson, regarding the center's injury: "I'm all right."   "Um, everything [hurts]. Just a lot of ice...stretching, massage, accupuncture."
