Joakim Noah Injury Update: Noah Out For Olympics

Only one Chicago Bulls player will ignore an injury in order to compete in the 2012 Olympics. Despite continued protests of the team's front office, Luol Deng will play for Great Britain's national team; Joakim Noah, on the other hand, will not join the French in London. Noah, who severely sprained his ankle in the Bulls' first round playoff loss to the Philadelphia Sixers, will not be healthy enough to participate in the Olympics.

The Bulls once seemed on the verge of having a major imprint on the basketball portion of the 2012 Olympics, but with Noah and Derrick Rose both out, only Deng, who plays for a team with little chance of advancing past group play.
