Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah is “most likely out” of Game 5 on Tuesday night because of a sprained left ankle, according to head coach Tom Thibodeau.
“He’s a little better,” Thibodeau said after Monday’s practice. “He’ll be a game-time [decision], most likely out.”
Noah sprained his ankle badly in Game 3 on Friday night after stepping on the foot of Philadelphia 76ers guard Andre Iguodala midway through the third quarter. Thibodeau took him out of the game, but decided to re-enter him in the fourth after he was cleared by Bulls’ athletic trainer Fred Tedeschi. Noah actually knocked down a jumper after being re-inserted but he limped badly around the floor before being taken out of the game for good.
