Bulls’ Joakim Noah out with ankle sprain

BOSTON (AP) Chicago center Joakim Noah sat out the Bulls’ game at Boston on Friday night with a sprained right ankle.

Noah turned his ankle at the end of the second quarter Wednesday night against Washington. He did not return for the second half against the Wizards and was inactive when the Bulls visited the Celtics.

The Bulls said Noah was scheduled for an MRI on Saturday. He missed four games in December with an injury to the same ankle.
