Bulls practice updates via KC Johnson:

Noah practiced fully and on track to play vs. Hornets.

Hoiberg said Mirotic "most likely" will start vs. Hornets because of match ups. Said will reassess lineup after that.

Hopefully the assessment revolves around Gasol, and whether he should be benched. As Vincent Goodwill points out, the next few teams on the Bulls schedule play a small PF, so Noah may not get another chance for a while.

Bad news everyone, HINRICH IN:

Then there's this on Friday's opponent:

Butler said beyond the 130 points Bulls allowed to Hornets, he's mad at Brian Roberts for shooting at end of blowout.

"You don't forget about the dude that shot that ball. I think that's disrespectful"

WELL MAYBE DON'T LET THEM DROP 130 ON YOU, DUMMY. Oh, Jimmy...
