Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah sat out Monday night’s 111-88 win over the Philadelphia 76ers because of left knee soreness. The absence came as a surprise, given that Noah was initially listed in the starting lineup. It would have been his first start of the season, but he decided not to play minutes before tipoff.

“You don’t plan on these things,” Noah said. “I wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been feeling great up to this point, and it just happened. I don’t think it’s [anything] too serious, but it was definitely a situation where I had to be smart. I wanted to play tonight really bad.”
