Joakim Noah sidelined 4-6 months

VIDEO: Bulls center Joakim Noah re-injures left shoulder.

Joakim Noah will need surgery to repair a dislocated left shoulder and is expected to miss four to six months, the Bulls announced Saturday, possibly signaling the end of his season and maybe his entire Chicago career.

Noah originally hurt the shoulder Dec. 21 against the Nets, forcing him to miss almost a month. The twi-time All-Star returned Jan. 11, only to hurt it again in the fourth game back, Friday against the Mavericks, after getting tangled with Dallas’ JaVale McGee in the second quarter.

Noah, an unrestricted free agent after the season, is averaging 8.8 rebounds and 4.3 points in 21.9 minutes and 29 appearances.

  1. It’s all too bad. Okay, maybe he will get traded eventually to a team and coach that appreciate him. Hey, maybe wherever Thibs coaches, he will pick him up. They seemed to play well and Noah seems to miss his coaching style.

  2. His numbers are significantly down this year
