Joakim Noah Injury Update: Chicago Bulls' Star Is Game-Time Decision For Game 6

The Philadelphia 76ers have their second chance to oust the Chicago Bulls and advance to the second round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs at the Wells Fargo Center in Game 6 Thursday night. But they might have to deal with one of Chicago's fallen stars.

Joakim Noah is a game-time decision for the Bulls as they look to become the ninth team in NBA Playoffs history to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a series. Noah badly sprained his left ankle during Game 3.

The Bulls' big man said Tuesday he's "feeling better" and hopes to play in Game 6 during an interview posted on the team's website, the only interview he has given since the injury. He did not speak to the media following the team's shootaround Thursday morning.

Taj Gibson is expected to play for the Bulls.
