Bulls’ Noah Learning from Previous Injury
Monday didn’t happen, Thursday might and a repeat of the 2009-10 season better not.
That’s the summary for the plantar fasciitis in Joakim Noah’s right foot, which sidelined him for the third straight game. Noah is hoping knowledge gained from missing 18 games in 2009-10 with the painful condition in his left foot will help him.
“The one in ’09-10, I just kept playing through it,” Noah said. “I probably played with it for a month until I couldn’t anymore. This time I stopped a lot earlier. I probably played on it for five or six games. I just knew what direction it was going in. In ’09-10, I just tried to act like it wasn’t there. That was a mistake.
“I’m moving in the right direction. With a couple more days of treatment, I’m hoping to be OK and try to go on Thursday (vs. the Nuggets).”
“Hopefully I’ll be 100 percent and be able to do what I do,” Noah said.
