Joakim Noah: Report: Joakim Noah is 'unhappy' in Chicago

The Chicago Bulls have suffered what could be a major blow in their 83-77 loss to the Dallas Mavericks with star centre Joakim Noah leaving the court with a dislocated left shoulder.

Jimmy Butler's career-best 53-point outing saved Chicago against lowly Philadelphia and the Bulls hope he has more in the arsenal when they host the Dallas Mavericks on Friday.

The 2014 Defensive Player of the Year started the year understandably smarting after new head coach Fred Hoiberg mislead media regarding Noah and the rookie coach coming to some mutually-assured deconstruction pertaining to his move to the bench. Butler is averaging 41.5 points, nine rebounds and six assists in the last two games while raising his scoring average to 23.1 as he makes a run at earning his second consecutive All-Star invitation.BUZZER BEATERS 1.

The same source also stated that while Noah is "not a distraction by any means" to his team, the veteran big man is "not the biggest fan" of Hoiberg, who took over the coaching reins in the last offseason and replaced long-time coach Tom Thibodeau.

Whether the Bulls will be as well depends, considering that Noah, while not a starters, was one of the Bulls' best post defenders and rebounders.

Noah immediately grabbed his shoulder and screamed before heading straight up the tunnel to get it evaluated by team staff. "The guards are going to have to go in there and hit bodies and try to help on the glass". For as good as Pachulia has played all season long with the Mavericks, McGee is getting healthy and is changing games more often than not these days.

By the time the 2016-2017 season comes around, Noah will be 31-years-old.

With the Mavs clinging to a 73-72 lead, Nowitzki stepped up and blocked a 6-foot jumper by Derrick Rose with 3:32 remaining in the game.

Joakim Noah separated his shoulder for the second time in the past month. Now, over at the Chicago Bulls, they are struggling to share the minutes between 4 talented bigs. He famously had a woman in the crowd in Miami captured making vulgar signs at him. "Obviously, if you left it up to the players, we'd all be playing", Nowitzki told reporters.

Noah may have played his final game with the Bulls as he will become a free agent in the offseason.

Just two years ago, Joakim Noah was the heart, soul, engine and face of the Bulls, serving as a wildly energetic backline protector for the league's No. 2 defense and a main facilitator of a scrounging-up-baskets-however-possible offense in Derrick Rose's absence.

"When you see that happen to someone like Jo, who is the energy guy on this team, it is going to affect us", said Hoiberg, though he added that he didn't think it affected the outcome of the game as much as other factors.

"He's one of the emotional leaders", said Taj Gibson.
