Joakim Noah Injury: Bulls Center Could Have Fracture In Ankle

It's hard to think that things could get much worse for the Chicago Bulls. After losing Derrick Rose to a torn ACL and watching Luol Deng battle for most of the season through torn ligaments in his wrist, center Joakim Noah rolled his ankle after stepping on Andre Iguodala's foot in Game 3 of their first round series against the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night. Noah walked off the court under his own power, but limped noticeably on his way to the locker room and not contribute for the rest of the night.
