Joakim Noah is hoping that he hasn't already played his last game for the Chicago Bulls.

The two-time NBA All-Star had season-ending surgery performed last week and as he'll be entering free agency at the end of the current campaign, there is a big chance that the Center may not put on a Bulls jersey again.

However, the 30-year-old is sincerely hoping that won't be the case as he wants to stick around with the Illinois-based franchise.

Speaking for the first time after his surgery, Noah was asked if his goal was to stay in Chicago for the future despite being an unrestricted free agent. 

"I hope so," he said, via ESPN. "Right now I'm not trying to focus on the future. I just had season-ending surgery last week. But this is all I know. So I'm looking forward to see what the guys are doing, and right now it's just all about taking a step back and just focusing on getting healthy, and then we'll go from there."

Noah dislocated his shoulder in the Bulls loss to the Dallas Mavericks on January 15th, aggravating a previous injury that he suffered to the same shoulder a month before. 

"I've felt better, but it's getting better every day," Noah explained. "It's tough being out here watching everybody compete. I just want to be out there and play, you know? ... It's not easy."

"It's very humbling to go through injuries as an athlete. This is the last thing you want. You prepare yourself for a long season, and then you get hurt. But it's part of it, and it's tough, but I'll bounce back."

We'll have to wait and see if that bounce back will be with the Bulls or somewhere else.
