Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah is still feeling sore from a preseason injury and will be "shut down for a while," according to coach Tom Thibodeaux.

Noah made his preseason debut Thursday night in the Bulls home win over the Pistons, scoring two points and grabbing eight rebounds.

He had missed the team's first three preseason games because of a strained right groin.
