Joakim Noah Out for a Week With Groin Pain

In a precautionary move, the Chicago Bulls have decided to shut big man Joakim Noah down for about a week. Noah is experiencing some pain in his groin. Per the Chicago Tribune: “Earlier, Noah sat out three games with a sore groin. And he didn’t like it. ‘It sucks man. I want to be out there,’ he said then. ‘I had a good summer. I worked really hard on my game. Having to sit the first two weeks was tough. I’ve been working, doing what I can do. I feel a lot better right now, so it’s good.'”
