Bulls center Joakim Noah fined $15,000 for verbally abusing officials upon his ejection Monday.
Somewhat surprised the new commissioner did not also suspend Noah for his profane laced tirade he got in before exiting the court Monday night, (which also had me saying a few choice words myself as I owned Noah in a few DFS leagues). It may have helped Noah's case that he publicly apologized after the game and took full responsibilities for his actions, granted it didn't help those of us who rostered him last night, but it's a new night with a favorable matchup for Noah who will be well rested and thus is worth forgiving but not forgetting about in daily league play tonight.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.
Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.
One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley
