Bulls Injury Update: Joakim Noah continues rehab, says knee feels great

By on 7/27/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Chicago Bulls won 48 games this past season, but were an early casualty in the playoffs, losing to the Washington Wizards in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. For the majority of the season, the Bulls were able to overcome a woeful offense that was 30th in the league in scoring with a defense that was first in the league in fewest points allowed. Center Joakim Noah was the major defensive force in the middle, despite playing much of the last few months with a knee injury. Noah is rehabbing his surgically repaired knee and all reports are that his knee is doing well.

Noah underwent arthroscopic knee surgery at the end of May after suffering with knee issues through most of the second half of the 2013-2014 season and during the playoffs.  The NBA Defensive Player of the Year was expected to need eight to 12 weeks of rehabilitation.

K.C. Johnson, who covers the Bulls for the Chicago Bulls, tweeted the following update on Noah.
Noah  has played his entire seven-year career with the Bulls.  He set career highs in scoring average (12.6), rebounds (11.3) and assists (5.4) this season.  In 476 career games, Noah is averaging 9.9 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.
