  • Joakim Noah: The Bulls appear helpless without him and Derrick Rose

And so, for the second time in a week, we look to the Bulls’ website expecting the worst.

The latest from their blogger Sam Smith isn’t encouraging, however. Joakim Noah reportedly left the arena Friday night in Philadelphia on crutches after suffering a gruesome ankle sprain in the second half of what turned out to be their 79-74 loss to the 76ers in the pivotal third game of their opening-round NBA playoff series.

The Sun-Times put the photo on the front page of its website and tagged it to its game story here. But don’t look too long. And it’s probably best to wait until after breakfast—or brunch, or lunch, or dinner, or until you’ve had enough Derby Day mint juleps so you just don’t care anymore.
