Bulls’ Noah Plans to Be Ready for Opener
Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah, who was plagued by plantar fasciitis in his right foot at the end of last season, says he’ll be ready to play by the start of the 2013-14 campaign.
“My foot feels a lot better, but I still have a lot of work to do,” Noah told ESPN NewYork.com Wednesday at the “Steve Nash Foundation Showdown,” a charity soccer game in Manhattan. “I’m still not 100 percent, but I feel pretty good and I’ll be ready at the beginning of the season.”
Noah, 28, gutted through the injury during the playoffs and didn’t miss a game because of it. He averaged 10.8 points and 9.6 rebounds during the postseason in 34.1 minutes per contest.
