Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah collected 20 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in Tuesday's loss to Washington.
Insight: Unfortunately, he also committed five turnovers. Every game is a must-win now for Chicago. The Bulls trail the Wizards two games to none heading into Friday night's Game 3.

Description: Chicago center Joakim Noah is your 2013-14 NBA Defensive Player of the Year. SOURCE: Bulls on Twitter
Insight: He received 100 of 125 first place votes. Noah had a tremendous season, setting new career-highs in points (12.6 ppg), rebounds (11.3 rpg), assists (5.4 apg) and steals (1.2 spg). Don't be surprised if he gets a few MVP votes.
 
Hot4/13/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah missed a triple-double by one assist Sunday at New York, picking up 13 points, 17 rebounds and nine dimes in the loss.
Insight: Noah had the tougher two legs of a triple-double Friday with 12 rebounds and 10 assists but he shot only 2-of-10 for six points. Meanwhile, Lance Stephenson had a triple-double Sunday to take back the NBA lead, which Noah tied with his fourth of the seson on Wednesday.
 
Hot4/9/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah tied Lance Stephenson for the NBA lead with his fourth triple-double of the season Wednesday night.
Insight: Noah had 15 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. He should get some MVP love due to the Bulls challenging for the No. 3 seed in the East without Derrick Rose (injured) or Luol Deng (traded).
 
3/19/2014 10:20:00 PM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah had yet another monster outing Wednesday against Philadelphia (14 points, ten rebounds, six assists, four blocks).
Insight: Then again, who doesn't have a monster game against the Sixers? Wednesday was Noah's 35th double-double of the season. That's a career-high.
 
Hot3/15/2014 10:39:00 PM
Description: Chicago center Joakim Noah came within two assists of his fourth triple-double Saturday in a win over Sacramento.
Insight: In 41 minutes, Noah totaled 23 points, 11 rebounds, eight dimes, three steals and five blocked shots. He's been absolutely unstoppable since the All-Star break, averaging 14.1 ppg, 10.4 rpg, 7.0 apg and 1.9 bpg over his last 14 games. There isn't a better big man in fantasy basketball than Noah right now.
 
Hot3/13/2014 10:23:00 PM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah had 13 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 35 minutes Thursday against the Rockets.
Insight: Evidently Noah, aka the new-age Bill Walton, is going to flirt with a triple-double every night for the rest of the season. He's tied for second in the NBA with three, all of which came since Feb. 11. Noah has thrown up 13.3 ppg, 12.2 rpg, 5.6 apg, 1.6 bpg and 1.1 spg his last 43 games and averaged seven-plus assists per game over his last 15.
 
Hot3/9/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Joakim Noah's incredible hot streak continued Sunday in a win against Miami.
Insight: Playing with a sprained thumb, Noah went off for 20 points, 12 boards, seven assists and five blocked shots. No fantasy center offers as wide a skill set as Noah. He has singlehandedly turned Chicago's season around in the absence of Derrick Rose (torn meniscus) and Luol Deng (traded to Cleveland).

Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah, diagnosed with a sprained thumb, has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game with Memphis. SOURCE: Aggrey Sam, Comcast Sportsnet Chicago
Insight: Noah (12.0 ppg, 11.4 rpg, 4.8 apg) played through the injury on Wednesday so his status was never really in doubt. With two triple-doubles in his last three contests, Noah needs to be starting everywhere.

Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah has been diagnosed with a sprained thumb. SOURCE: Nick Friedell, ESPN Chicago
Insight: Noah (12.0 ppg, 11.4 rpg, 4.8 apg) played through the injury on Wednesday and we imagine he'll do the same Friday against Memphis. With two triple-doubles in his last three contests, Noah needs to be starting in all formats.
 
Hot3/6/2014 1:13:00 PM
Description: Chicago center Joakim Noah left the locker room with a splint on his thumb after Wednesday night's game. SOURCE: Chicago Tribune
Insight: Noah had just posted his second triple-double in his last three games. He said there is nothing to worry about, that it's "just a little boo-boo."
 
Hot3/5/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Joakim Noah's triple-double Wednesday against the Pistons was his third of the season.
Insight: Only Indiana guard Lance Stephenson has produced more triple-doubles than Noah. Wednesday Noah (ten points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two blocks) became the first center since David Robinson in 1993-94 to post three triple-doubles involving assists in the same season.
 
Hot3/3/2014 6:29:00 PM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah sprained his right ankle Sunday against the Knicks but will play Monday, according to Nick Friedell of espn.com.
Insight: Noah returned to Sunday's game after suffering the injury. He had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assists for his fifth career triple-double.
 
3/2/2014 2:52:00 PM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah sprained his right ankle Sunday against the Knicks but is expected to return. SOURCE: Nick Friedell, ESPN Chicago
Insight: Noah only needed 30 minutes to earn his fifth career triple-double (12 points, 12 assists, ten rebounds). Expect Taj Gibson to fill in while Noah gets his ankle re-taped.
 
Hot2/25/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Chicago center Joakim Noah was dominant on both ends of the floor Tuesday versus the Hawks.
Insight: He tallied 20 points to go with 12 rebounds and three steals. Always the deft passer, Noah finished with three assists. The two-time All-Star has been outstanding this month, averaging 14 ppg, 11.6 rpg and 5.9 apg in 11 February appearances. He'll be a must-start Wednesday when the Bulls host Golden State.
 
Hot2/23/2014 10:16:00 PM
Description: Chicago center Joakim Noah was on point during Sunday's loss to Miami.
Insight: Noah has been carrying the Bulls of late and Sunday was no exception. The talented big man registered 20 points, 15 rebounds and three blocked shots. Fantasy owners would be crazy not to start him at this point.
 
Hot2/11/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Nothing to see here, just another triple-double for Joakim Noah (19 points, 16 rebounds, 11 assists).
Insight: It's Noah's fourth career triple-double. Noah leads all NBA centers in assists this season with an average of 4.3 dimes per game. He'll head to New Orleans later this week to compete in his second All-Star Game in as many seasons.
 
Hot2/9/2014 6:22:00 PM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah starred in Sunday's win against the Lakers.
Insight: He finished the game with 20 points, 13 boards, two steals, three assists and three blocked shots. Noah is headed to his second All-Star Game in as many seasons. He's the only reason the injury-depleted Bulls are still in the mix for a playoff spot.
 
2/4/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: Updating an earlier item, the NBA has fined Chicago center Joakim Noah $15,000 for his behavior Monday against the Kings.
Insight: This means Noah will not be suspended. Make sure the two-time All-Star is in your lineup tonight against Phoenix.
 
2/4/2014 4:52:00 PM
Description: With a suspension looming, Bulls center Joakim Noah's status is up in the air for Tuesday's game against Phoenix.
Insight: Noah's expletive-filled tirade after his ejection Monday night in Sacramento is likely to cost him a few games. Noah could always appeal the decision but it's doubtful he'll be able to avoid at least some form of punishment. Taj Gibson would start at center if and when Noah (11.6 ppg, 11.3 rpg, 1.3 bpg) decides to accept his ban.
