Joakim Noah Returns To Practice After Bereavement Leave
Joakim Noah returned to Chicago Bulls practice on Saturday and will play in Sunday's Game 1 against the Washington Wizards.

"I will do my best to respect his life and his family in this time of grief and ask that everyone please do the same. I will miss him very much," Noah said in a statement.
