Joakim Noah Injury: Bulls Center Hoping To Play In Game 6

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah hasn't played in days, but he told Bulls announcer Chuck Swirsky that he's feeling better and he hopes to play in Game 6, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. Noah sprained his left ankle in Chicago's Game 3 loss to the Sixers and he's missed the past two games of the series.

Over the first three games of the series, Noah averaged 15.0 PPG on 73 percent shooting, 9.3 RPG, 3.0 APG and 1.3 BPG as arguably the team's best performer. Omer Asik has started in his absence, but the team has sorely missed his unique playmaking skills on offense.
