Sometimes when the hits start coming they just don't stop. If it wasn't bad enough that the Chicago Bulls are forced to go the duration of the post season without arguably one of the best players in the NBA, Derrick Rose, now they may lose yet another top player--Joakim Noah.
Noah was driving down the lane on a fast break and appears to step on the foot of one of the 76ers and it turns in a direction that the human ankle is not meant to turn. The Bulls had a 45-42 lead at the time of the injury, but ended up losing 79-74 after the 76ers outscored the Bulls 28-14 in the final period.
Without him the Bulls will have to lean on Carlos Boozer pretty heavily to get the job done, but it will really be an uphill battle for the Bulls should they lose Noah as well. After seeing that ankle go in ways it shouldn't I'd be shocked to see him play again this season.
Oh and if you are wondering where the polecat is that someone is stepping on after Noah goes down there isn't one there. That sound is coming from Noah.
