This has to be a little worrying to Bulls fans.
It’s not that the anchor of the Bulls defense is out against the Nets (although that’s not ideal), it’s that plantar fasciaitis appears to be back with Noah — back in the 2009-10 season Noah missed months battling the same condition.
Plantar fasciaitis is pain along the thick tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. It’s a wear-and-tear injury a number of NBA players deal with in different degrees but the only real cure for it is rest and time off your feet. Noah will not get rest over the All-Star break as he has been named to the team for the first time in his career.
There is no word on how long he will be out, but this is something the Bulls don’t want to linger.
