Found May 18, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Chicago Bulls forward/center Joakim Noah was hampered throughout the end of the season due to his plantar fascia injury. Now that the season is over, coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters – including Joe Cowley of The Chicago Sun-Times – that Noah’s ailment could require surgery.“That hasn’t been determined,’’ Thibodeau said of Noah undergoing surgery. “Obviously, we’d like to avoid the surgery. He has responded a lot better. He has found something that has worked. We want him to get completely healthy That will be the focus, getting him back to 100 percent. He needs some rest, as most of the guys do. Same thing with Luol. We have to get him completely healthy again. Those are two players that we’ll be on top of right away.’’Noah played through the end of the regular season and into the playoffs experiencing extreme discomfort in his foot. The injury is something that requires rest, something that Noah couldn’t afford at with the Bulls’ season ongoing.Now that the season is over, Noah will attempt to rehab the injury. If that doesn’t work, surgery will likely be required.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
