Joakim Noah, Marco Belinelli to sit out Wizards-Bulls game

As expected, Joakim Noah and Marco Belinelli will both sit out Tuesday's Wizards-Bulls game. Noah has not played since March 21 due to plantar fasciitis, while Belinelli has been absent since March 23 with an abdominal strain.

Via the Chicago Tribune:

"They're both better but they both have the type of injury where you don't want it to linger," [Tom] Thibodeau said. "We're winding down right now so we want to make sure they're completely healthy."

Nazr Mohammed will start for Noah, while Daequan Cook will take Belinelli's minutes off the bench.
