Joakim Noah has been ruled out due to a shoulder injury. Noah sustained a tear in his shoulder muscle and will be out for 2-4 weeks.

Noah becomes a free agent this off-season. The veteran averages 4.5 points, 8.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.1 blocks in 22.3 minutes per game this season.

Noah sustained the tear in his shoulder while defending Brooklyn Nets’ Andrea Bargnani during Monday night’s encounter. Fred Hoiberg, Bulls head coach on Wednesday announced that Noah could be out for at least two weeks due to this injury.

Noah reiterated his coach’s words, but mentioned he could be out for more weeks. Noah has played with injuries throughout his career, and when he sits out, one needs to consider that the situation is serious and the veteran star could well miss a month. Bulls need Noah to get fit as early as possible.

Bobby Portis and Pau Gasol will fill up Noah’s void in the interim period. Noah is considered to be an emotional leader of Chicago and is the team’s only defensive asset.

The Bulls nest face Oklahoma City Thunder on Christmas day.
