Bulls Lose Joakim Noah Until February

Well, that's no good at all.

Just as they were getting Carlos Boozer up to speed, the Bulls announced Joakim Noah needs thumb/hand surgery that will keep him out until February or March. Noah had been playing with torn ligaments in the thumb for 2-3 weeks; the idea here is surgery will have him at full strength for the playoffs in May and June.

Probably not a disaster for the Bulls, but disappointing news for anyone who's grown to love watching Noah's unique brand of exuberance and intensity on the court. Get ready for another big dose of Taj Gibson!
