Bulls center Joakim Noah has been ruled out of tonight's game against the Nuggets in Denver. Noah is said to be dealing with left knee and eye issues.

The 29-year-old underwent surgery on his left knee during the offseason. Noah reportedly got poked in the eye during Monday night's win over the Utah Jazz.

Noah, who also missed two games earlier this season while battling flu-like symptoms, is averaging 7.9 points and 9.2 rebounds. Both are significant decreases from those categories (12.6 ppg, 11.3 rpg) last season.

While Noah will sit, point guard Derrick Rose is set to play his second consecutive game after missing the previous four with a hamstring injury.
