Noah acknowledged the seriousness of the May 2014 knee surgery, which the Bulls originally termed minor and needing an eight- to 12-week rehabilitation period. Both Noah and the Bulls acknowledged on the eve of training camp that a longer recovery period prohibited Noah from playing full court all offseason. And Noah has remained on minutes restrictions all season. "It was more than a scope," Noah said. "That's what it was supposed to be. So it definitely took longer than we expected. But it's nothing that I can't recover from and be back 100 percent and be right." Chicago Tribune

What I will say is “flu-like symptoms” has covered everything in the NBA from a hangover to an irregular heartbeat. (Hello, Eddy Curry.) That’s not to say this is what happened here. It is to say flu-like symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean the flu. In this case, I’m told Noah just got very, very sick, with a fever and bad cold. He appeared in the postgame locker room in Milwaukee and I assume he’ll try to play Friday in Philadelphia. Chicago Tribune
