NEW YORK (AP) - Joakim Noah is back in the Chicago Bulls' lineup after missing a game with a bruised right thigh, while the Knicks' Raymond Felton was out for the first of possibly a few games with a sore left hamstring.
The Bulls were still without Luol Deng. He missed Wednesday night's game because of a sore left Achilles.
Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Felton's absence could ''probably be a little while'' with an injury that has bothered him throughout the season. Pablo Prigioni got the start at point guard, and Kenyon Martin was also back in New York's lineup after missing two games with a sore left ankle.
Amare Stoudemire also was available to play on the second night of back-to-back games for the first time this season.
