|Noah Returns to Bulls
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Bulls center Joakim Noah was ready to play on a limited basis against Philadelphia after missing seven games because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
The return Saturday night was a bit surprising considering coach Vinny Del Negro said Friday that Noah probably would not play against the 76ers. Yet, he was back in uniform and expected to come off the bench after sitting out the past 2 weeks.
Averaging 12.0 rebounds and tied for second in the league entering the game, Noah says he's "just going to go out there and try to do my best" with the minutes he's given.
