Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said before Game 2 against the Nets in Brooklyn that center Joakim Noah will play Monday night, but is limited to 20-25 minutes for the game. Noah played just 13 minutes vs. the Nets in Game 1 before having to leave due to the pain in his heel caused by plantar fasciitis, which he's been dealing with, and playing through, all season.

The Bulls badly need Noah on the floor not just for defense against Brook Lopez, who ate them up with 21 points in the first game, but also for the energy he brings to the floor.
