Bulls' Noah, Hinrich expected to play Game 2
Joakim Noah and Kirk Hinrich are expected to play for the Bulls in Game 2.
"[They're feeling] actually pretty good," Thibodeau said after the Bulls' film session Sunday. "So the one plus is Jo felt pretty good today."
Noah was largely ineffective in just 13 minutes of action in Game 1 and was in noticeable discomfort during and after the game. But he said on Saturday night that he would play in Game 2.
Thibodeau later clarified his comment regarding Noah's status.
"[He's] relatively good for where he is," Thibodeau said. "Not quite the same soreness that he had previously. So he feels like he can do something today, which is a good sign. We'll see where he is [Monday]."
Thibodeau said that if Noah was healthy enough to play, he would start.
"He's a plus," Thibodeau said. "He's a plus. I think that we feed off of what he can do defensively, and offensively he has a very unique skill set because of the way he can pass the ball."
Hinrich sustained his bruise after catching a knee to the thigh, but he said after Saturday's game he was OK. Neither player was made available for comment.
