NBA: Chicago Bulls at Phoenix Suns

Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Monday that Joakim Noah understands why he was benched for much of Saturday’s loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, but Noah declined to speak to reporters once again.

“He understands,” Thibodeau said after the morning shootaround as his team prepared to face the Los Angeles Lakers. “The thing is he’s been around.

“The team has to come first, that’s the most important thing. Sometimes that happens in-game, not a big deal.”

Noah was benched for the final 22:53 of the overtime loss, and Thibodeau expects Noah to respond positively against the Lakers.
