Joakim Noah is 'Doubtful' for Game One against the Nets

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Again, the key to this series between the Nets and Bulls lies less at the feet of Derrick Rose and more at the feet of Joakim Noah. Or, shall I say foot.

Noah has played just three times in the last 15 games due to Plantar Fasciitis and now it seems as if he's "doubtful" to play in Game One on Saturday night, and maybe even beyond.

Details:

So, there you have it. Noah doesn't sound as if he's got a good feeling about playing on Saturday, maybe longer. Again, the key to this series is Noah, who is one of the best defenders in the NBA and who would make Brook Lopez work in the paint. Mohammed is a serviceable big man, but not someone who can replace the impact that Noah can have on this series.

Stay tuned for more as we get close to Game One.
