Noah will rest for a week

At Friday's shootaround, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau announced plans to shut down Joakim Noah for a week. Noah is still having issues with a groin strain and the team wants to make sure he's healthy for the start of the regular season.

Noah suffered the injury early in training camp and sat out the first three preseason games. He returned to the court on Wednesday against Detroit, producing 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 2 points in 20 minutes of action.

Thibodeau said Jimmy Butler is a game-time decision with a bruised knee. He sat out Wednesday's game.

The Bulls play Indiana tonight at the United Center, then have three preseason games remaining before opening the regular season on Oct. 29 at Miami.
