CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah has left their game against Brooklyn with an apparent left shoulder injury.
Noah was defending on a play in the final minute of the third quarter on Monday night when Brooklyn's Andrea Bargnani, after jumping, came down hard on Noah's left arm, bending it back awkwardly.
Noah, who was called for a foul on the play, ran around the court in obvious pain with his shoulder slumped over for a moment before heading off the court and into the tunnel leading to the Chicago locker room.
Noah had four points, eight rebounds and eight assists in 15 minutes off the bench before the injury.
