Chicago Bulls big man Joakim Noah said he is "feeling better" and hopes to play in Game 6 against the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday.
"I'm feeling better. I'm just trying to get out there for the next game. I feel like we played really hard tonight, it was a great win, guys are giving everything they've got. You know, let's bring it back to Chicago for Game 7," Noah said during an interview posted on the team's official website.
Asked whether it's difficult to watch his teammates play without him, Noah added, "It's hard. This is what we live for, to play in games like this. So not to be out there with your teammates is hard, but we won and we live to fight another day. It's going to be a big Game 6, and I'm hoping I'll be able to play."
