Joakim Noah had another solid night passing the ball in Friday's win over the Wolves, handing out eight assists to go with 11 points and 12 rebounds.
Noah did not have a steal or block and that's pretty uncharacteristic of him, and the move back into a passing role with Derrick Rose out is not a surprise. Pau Gasol's (illness) absence didn't hurt things either, but regardless Noah stands to gain with Rose out for the bulk of the year. Feb 28 - 2:46 AM

Joakim Noah handed out eight assists against the Hornets on Wednesday with four points, 11 rebounds, one steal and three blocks.

He's going to make a lot of passes out of the post for the Bulls now. His assist percentage is down considerably compared to last season and it has a lot to do with Derrick Rose. Noah still won't be as great as last season because of Jimmy Butler and Pau Gasol, but he should get about a two-round boost in fantasy.

Tom Thibodeau wants to keep Joakim Noah's minutes in the 32-34 range going forward.

Noah has three straight games with 10 or more rebounds, and he's amassed at least eight assists in two of those three contests. Getting Noah back on track is going to be critical to anything the Bulls hope to do, but Noah's health will be the ultimate dictator of just how much, and how often, he's playing.

Joakim Noah was limping a bit during the first half on Saturday and played through it, finishing with three points, 12 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block.

He couldn't score, but Noah had a handful of nice passes. There was no word after the game what was bothering Noah and hopefully it's not something that will linger. He's not playing well based solely on the stat sheet and we wouldn't consider him a buy-low guy.
Feb 21 - 11:25 PM

Joakim Noah stated after Thursday's win over the Cavs that he's feeling "better and better," physically as the season goes on.

"I still feel like I got another gear to get to," Noah said. "It's just been up and down, man, so I just have to stay patient, but I'm excited though. I'm feeling better and better, and I just got to keep working." Noah has been more active on both ends of the floor lately, and it looks like he's finally able to play on his surgically repaired knee without thinking about it. While he's not going to be the same guy he was last year, he'll still be worth owning for his solid contributions to the rebounding, shot blocking, and assist categories.

Joakim Noah pummeled the Cavaliers' short-handed frontcourt on Thursday with 10 points, a game-high 15 boards, seven assists and one block in 31 minutes of action.

Noah was guarded by James Jones at one point, as Timofey Mozgov was in foul trouble and the Cavs were out of alternatives, so his nice game deserves an asterisk. Pau Gasol added 18 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and the Bulls stroll into the All-Star break with a three-game win streak, having improved their overall record to 33-20.

Joakim Noah was limited by foul trouble throughout Tuesday's game vs. DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings, scoring just two points with two boards and four assists in 17 minutes.

This was a fluky foul-plagued dud from Noah, who has come on strong over the past two weeks. Tuesday's win gave the Bulls a 19-9 record against teams below .500, a disappointing mark for a team with championship aspirations. "We're capable of good things, and we're capable of bad performances," Pau Gasol said after Sunday's comeback win. Chicago will have a chance to get healthy and re-focus during the break, and they're still in good position with the fourth-best record in the East.
Feb 10 - 10:46 PM

Joakim Noah did not score from the field on his eight attempts against the Rockets on Wednesday, making one shot at the line with 19 rebounds, three assists and one block.

His scoring numbers have evaporated. In January, Noah averaged just 6.3 points, 9.2 boards, 3.5 boards, 1.9 blocks and 0.6 steals on 41.3 percent from the field and 69.6 percent from the line. Noah is still worth owning, but the 2013-14 version of himself is not walking through that door.
Feb 5 - 1:38 AM

Joakim Noah backed up a very good night on Thursday with a solid outing on Friday against the Suns, scoring nine points on 3-of-8 shooting with 10 rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes.

As Noah builds a foundation since returning from injury owners will want to step up their efforts to sell him high. Between his injury risk and the fact he's not needed to handle the ball so much this year, he's simply in a different tax bracket than his public perception would suggest.
Jan 31 - 2:59 AM

Joakim Noah flirted with a triple-double against the Lakers on Thursday with nine points, 17 rebounds, nine assists and one block in 42 minutes.

He's suddenly on a roll. Noah put up 18 points, 15 boards and six assists on Tuesday, which comes on the heels of some very underwhelming lines for the past month. Considering how frequently he's been hurt and how almost all of his per-minute output is down, his fantasy owners may want to try and sell high here.
Jan 30 - 1:36 AM

The Bulls shocked the Warriors in California on Tuesday, aided by Joakim Noah's 18 points (7-of-12 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), 15 rebounds, six assists and two steals.

Noah recently said that he feels as healthy as he has all season, and tonight's 40-minute performance supports that claim. The combination of Pau Gasol's arrival and Noah's injury problems have thus far reduced him to a late-round value, but coach Tom Thibodeau hasn't lost faith and Noah could be primed for a solid second half of the season. Andrew Bogut wasn't playing for the Warriors tonight, which contributed to Noah's huge game, and this is a mild sell-high opportunity.
Jan 28 - 2:02 AM

Joakim Noah said on Tuesday that both his knee and ankle are feeling good, and he is feeling the best he has felt physically all season.

Noah sprained his ankle back on Jan. 14, and he's been dealing with discomfort in his surgically repaired left knee throughout the season, so it's nice to hear that he's finally feeling healthy. However, he's nowhere near the player he was last year as a primary component of the Bulls offense with Derrick Rose now running the show, and Pau Gasol stealing some of his thunder. His averages of 7.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.5 blocks per game aren't likely to improve much as the season progresses.
Jan 27 - 2:32 PM

Joakim Noah was benched for the entire fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Heat, finishing the game with four points, five rebounds, two assists, and two blocks.

Head coach Tom Thibodeau said he liked the group that started the fourth quarter, and that is the reason why Joakim did not re-enter the game. Thibodeau maintained that Joakim is healthy, and he just wanted to watch his minutes, but with the result being an L in the win-loss column, this will not likely be a trend that continues. Look for Noah to bounce-back during Tuesday's game vs. Golden State.

Joakim Noah (ankle) will in fact play against the Miami Heat on Sunday.

You just knew he wouldn't miss the opportunity to play against the Heat and owners can comfortably pencil him into their lineups. Noah has had a underwhelming season so far but his value will only go up if he can avoid another injury. Taj Gibson's value takes a hit with this news, but he is still worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 25 - 11:19 AM

Joakim Noah (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Miami.

Noah's ankle has been an issue for a while now, but we doubt he will miss a chance to play against the Miami Heat so his owners can pencil him into lineups barring a setback. He isn't exactly a must-start option anymore, but if he can stay healthy he should be able to improve upon his dwindling numbers. If Noah does end up sitting, Taj Gibson will see a big uptick in minutes.
