Joakim Noah in starting lineup

CHICAGO -- Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was in the starting lineup for Monday night's contest against the San Antonio Spurs at the United Center.

After missing three games Noah played Thursday in Denver, but he continues to be bothered by plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

Guard Kirk Hinrich was out again Monday with a right elbow injury, while backup Marco Belinelli was available as he continues to rehab his sprained right ankle.
