Noah had 10 points (5-13 FG) and 11 rebounds in 37 minutes Thursday against the Kings. He added six assists, one steal, and one block with one turnover.
Noah's high-energy style of play leads to him filling up the box score on most nights. He got himself into some foul trouble early Thursday defending DeMarcus Cousins, but was still able to post his usual double-double line. Continue to start him in all fantasy formats.

Noah seemed to be moving around pretty well Monday as he played very well against the Pistons' big front line. He may continue to be on a minutes restriction, but he is at least starting to look more comfortable after having knee surgery over the summer.

Noah finished Saturday's game against the Celtics on the bench due to "restrictions", the Associated Press reports.
Both Noah and Bulls' coach Tom Thibodeau did not elaborate on the restrictions that Noah is under, but it was discouraging that he was not able to be on the floor for the final two minutes of this game as the Bulls were trying for a comeback win. Noah scored 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, six assists and one steal in 31 minutes, so he was very effective until he reached his playing limit. He is still a valuable fantasy asset, but he won't be able to reach his full potential until these restrictions are eliminated.

Noah (illness) will not play Friday against the 76ers, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer reports.
This will mark his third missed game in four days due to this sickness. With Noah's next game coming Saturday night, he will again be very questionable to play. In his place, Taj Gibson should start and receive ample playing time.
