Joakim Noah turned his ankle over— badly— in the third quarter of Friday night's Game 3 vs. the Philadelphia 76ers, and the eyewitness prognosis from immediately after the game was not good. Noah was seen walking very gingerly with the assistance of crutches as the Bulls exited the arena following their 79-74 loss to the Sixers.

If Noah is out for any significant amount of time, it may be the final blow to a Bulls team that is already reeling after Derrick Rose tore his ACL in Game 1.
