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 recorded a double-double Monday against the Pistons as he scored 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-4 FT) to go along with 14 rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes.
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 returned to the lineup Friday against the 76ers after missing two games with an illness, pulling down nine rebounds.
Noah had a poor offensive night, scoring just five points (1-4 FG, 3-4 FT), but did have the aforementioned rebounds, two assists and a block. He seems to be back to full strength now and is good to go in all formats.

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.

Noah (illness) is listed as questionable in advance of Friday's game versus the Sixers, ESPN Chicago reports.
Noah has missed the Bulls' past pair of contests due to illness, but may be able to return for Friday's tilt in Philadelphia. However, should his sickness linger, Taj Gibson would figure to receive another start at center for Chicago. With that in mind, Noah's status will have to be monitored before Friday's tip-off.

Noah (illness) is considered doubtful to play Wednesday versus the Bucks, ESPN Chicago reports.
Noah missed Tuesday's game against the Magic due to illness, which prevented him from travelling with the Bulls for Wednesday's contest in Milwaukee. Given the short commute, Noah is expected to join his teammates some time before Wednesday's game, but since he's still under the weather, Noah probably won't play. Should that prove true, Taj Gibson figures to start at center for Chicago once again Wednesday.

Noah (illness) is out Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson reports.
He won't travel with the team to Milwaukee, but is expected to drive up from Chicago by himself to join the team, before making a decision about his status for Wednesday's game. Consider him day-to-day for now, and look for Taj Gibson to star in his place.
