Joakim Noah Injury Update: Bulls' Center A Game-Time Decision For Game 6 Vs. 76ers

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah remains a game-time decision with an ankle injury for Game 6 of the Bulls' 2012 NBA Playoffs first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said, according to KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. Noah has not played since injuring the foot in Game 4.

Noah himself declined to comment to reporters. He was limping around and did not participate in the shoot-around.

Noah suffered the injury rolling over a 76ers player's foot in Game 3, a Bulls' loss. He stayed in the game, but re-aggravated the injury and had to come out. The Bulls trail 3-2 in the series after taking Game 5 in Chicago.

The good news for the Bulls is that forward Taj Gibson will play in Game 6, he said. He got hurt midway through Game 5.
