Rose, Noah Expected to Play Wednesday
Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah practiced fully Monday at the Berto Center, and Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said he expects both to play Wednesday in the next preseason game against the Pistons.
The Bulls held both players out of Saturday’s first NBA game in South America, a two-point victory over the Wizards in Rio de Janeiro. Rose experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee, which team officials and Rose downplayed exhaustively. Noah has yet to play this preseason because of a sore groin.
