Probably no minutes restrictions on some key Bulls
Thibodeau said there is no playing time restriction on Rose and didn’t think there would be on Noah. But Thibodeau said he’d more observe Noah regarding conditioning given he’s missed most of preseason with his groin strain. Kirk Hinrich seems recovered from his concussion and shoulder issue.
But Thibodeau isn’t skipping steps and not letting reporters push him to do so.
“You can’t talk about it,” Thibodeau said when asked about displacing Miami. “You have to do it. You have to put the work into it. There are 30 teams that are talking. I’m looking for the guys who are willing to commit to it. That involves a lot of work and sacrifice.”
