Joakim Noah scored just four points against the Lakers on Thursday with 12 rebounds, two assists and one block in 27 minutes.
He's been somewhat awful in his last five, averaging 8.0 points, 10.6 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 blocks and 0.4 steals on 37.1 percent from the field and 58.3 percent from the line. Noah only has a usage rate of just 16.4 and an assist percentage of 11.8 in that span, which is a far cry from last season's 25.8 assist percentage. Hopefully his owners didn't overpay on draft day because he's not a great buy-low players unless it's fairly cheap. Dec 25 - 11:26 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) played on Monday against the Raptors, scoring 14 points on 4-of-4 shooting with four rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes.

Noah was probable and did a little of everything tonight. With all the options the Bulls have this season, owners shouldn't be expecting a re-do of last year.
Dec 23 - 12:54 AM

Joakim Noah (ankle) is being listed as probable for Monday's game vs. the Raptors.

Noah has been listed as probable for the past two games, and was able to suit up for both of those outings, so we'd expect him to be available on Monday. Still, owners will want to check back for an official update closer to Monday's tip.
Dec 21 - 3:58 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) is probable to play Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

The Bulls sure could use him going up against Memphis, and owners can probably feel comfortable plugging him into their lineups. We'll let you know if anything changes.
Dec 19 - 1:33 PM

Joakim Noah played 34 minutes against the Knicks during a 103-97 win on Thursday, making 1-of-8 from the field for four points with 13 rebounds, three assists and one block.

He had six offensive rebounds and also had the biggest rebound of the game to help close out the win. Noah has dealt with knee soreness and ankle issues for much of the season, so the durability is somewhat troubling. Plus, most of his other numbers are down, so he's not even close to being as valuable in fantasy as he was last season.
Dec 18 - 11:56 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) will play Thursday vs. the Knicks, as expected.

Get him in your lineups for what is a favorable matchup vs. the Knicks. With Derrick Rose (illness) unavailable for this one, Noah will be asked to do a bit more on offense, and he makes for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Dec 18 - 6:32 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) is expected to play against the Knicks on Thursday.

Noah was a participant in shootaround and is expected to be available when the Bulls take on the Knicks Thursday night. Noah's owners can feel free to plug him back into their starting lineups, while Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will see their fantasy value take a hit upon Noah's return.
Dec 18 - 12:18 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) said he will play against the Knicks on Thursday.

It's the Bulls, so he's not a complete lock to play. Noah has been held out of the lineup for the past four games, but he did go through practice. Upon his return, Taj Gibson will lose some minutes while Nikola Mirotic will also lose some playing time -- he's struggled lately. Noah's owners can pencil him in for their lineups.
Dec 17 - 2:41 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) fully expects to play against the Knicks on Thursday if all goes well.

He practiced fully on Wednesday and as long as he is feeling up for it he will play against the Knicks. Noah has missed the last four games, but owners can finally expect to have him back and would be wise to get him in their lineups. Taj Gibson would likely slide back to the bench with this news and Nikola Mirotic could potentially fall out of the rotation. Stay tuned.
Dec 17 - 2:01 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) will not play against the Hawks on Monday.

He was doubtful for this one and had almost no chance to play. Noah could miss more time and the Bulls are not going to rush him back considering they have such great depth behind him. Taj Gibson will start and is a must-start play while Nikola Mirotic will also get more run.
Dec 15 - 6:01 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Hawks.

We would be shocked if Noah played. Without him, Pau Gasol, Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will all see more playing time. The Bulls are also playing the second of a back-to-back, so that's something to consider when filling out lineups in daily leagues.
Dec 15 - 12:08 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

Taj Gibson, Pau Gasol, and Nikola Mirotic will all see an uptick in value with Noah sidelined, and make for quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues against a depleted Miami frontcourt. Plan accordingly.
Dec 14 - 4:46 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

He has missed the Bulls last two games, and he appears likely to sit this one out as well. Noah said on Friday that his ankle is showing signs of improvement, but knowing the Bulls they will probably proceed with extreme caution. Owners should have a backup plan ready and we expect Taj Gibson to start and play big minutes if Noah sits. Nikola Mirotic would also continue to have a good role off of the bench and could be a sneaky plug-and-play.
Dec 14 - 10:05 AM

Joakim Noah stated during Friday morning's shootaround that his ankle is improving, and his knee is fine, but he remains out vs. Portland.

It's nice to know that Noah is making improvements, and hopefully some rest will be the cure for his ailing ankle and knee. Taj Gibson will remain with the starting unit as long as Noah is sidelined, and he'll make for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Nikola Mirotic will also see extended minutes.
Dec 12 - 2:16 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Trail Blazers.

That means that Taj Gibson will draw another start, and he'll make for a quality play in daily leagues. Nikola Mirotic will also see some extended minutes off the bench, and he too will make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
