CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bulls player Joakim Noah (JOH'-keem NOH'-ah) will be a reserve for the Eastern Conference at the NBA All-Star Game.

It's the second year in a row that Noah has earned All-Star honors. The game will be Feb. 16 in New Orleans.

Noah had eight points, 10 rebounds and three assists and played for more than 16 minutes in last year's All-Star Game.

Bulls General Manager Gar Forman says Noah is "extremely deserving."
