Bulls shut down injured Noah for a week

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah will be held out of all basketball-related activities for about a week in hopes that the rest will clear up his lingering groin strain.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said Noah still has a little soreness before the Bulls played the Indiana Pacers in a preseason game on Friday night and that the team wants him to be completely healthy before he returns.

Noah was injured early in training camp and missed the Bulls' first three preseason games before playing 19 minutes Wednesday night against the Detroit Pistons. Afterward, he said he felt "great," but the soreness in the groin returned on Thursday.
