[Introduction] Bulls players Noah and Hinrich are both unable to participate in the next preseason due to injury, and may even miss the regular season
In the opening game, fortunately, the team’s defensive champion Butler returned from injury.
On October 24th, , there was bad news from the Chicago Bulls. The two giants of the team, Noah and Hinrich, both missed the preseason game against the Thunder on Wednesday local time due to injuries.
And Bulls coach Thibodeau said that they may also miss the regular season opener against the Miami Heat.
Noah is the team’s starting center, and Hinrich is Rose’s first substitute. The importance of the two to the Bulls cannot be overstated.
If neither of them will be able to play in the first game, then Thibodeau’s tactics will become awkward and the result will become more or less ominous.
Although Thibodeau said that Noah could not participate in the opening game against the Heat, he also hoped that Noah would not do intensive training.
But Noah is very hopeful to come back in the opener, “I still have a good chance to play, I very much hope that I can play. In fact, I feel a lot better now, and I will continue to work hard to recover and make myself capable on that day.”
Standing on the court.” “I have a health assessment every day now, and I hope to return to the court as soon as possible so that I can help the team. But I still need to stay sane and complete the recovery process step by step.”
Hinrich was accidentally injured in the game against the Pacers last week. He accidentally hit his head on rookie Eric Murphy’s knee and caused a concussion. He has not yet passed the league’s concussion inspection.
Fortunately, the Bulls’ defensive champion is back on the team. Jimmy Butler, who was previously absent due to knee soreness, is now available for the game and may return in the next game.
“I may play, I have been resting for a long time, and there is nothing wrong with my body now.” Butler said.
