Tom Thibodeau does not think he is playing Joakim Noah and Luol Deng too many minutes.
He wanted to make that clear Friday afternoon when asked if he thought Noah, who like Deng is averaging over 40 minutes a game, is seeing too much court time for the Chicago Bulls.
“No,” Thibodeau said. “It doesn’t matter. He’s in his 20s.”
The veteran coach chafed at the suggestion he was overworking the two most important players on his current team without Derrick Rose on the floor.
The coach said Deng has done well with his minutes over the past few seasons and Noah is handling his workload fine this season.
