12:29 PM ET 02.10 | Bulls center Joakim Noah missed three games last week with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, but recently returned for the team's back-to-back against the Nuggets and Jazz. However, Noah noticeably struggled in both of the games, looking a step slow and having problems holding on to the ball. Noah admitted that the foot is still bothering him, but said he does not want to miss any more games. "I really don't want to," he said. "I really don't want to. I know I didn't play a lot of minutes in the Denver game but it didn't get any worse from [Thursday]. So we'll see how it feels [Saturday], and hopefully I'm all right." Sitting Noah would be a tough decision for Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, who does not trust backup center Nazr Mohammed at all. But with the Bulls firmly in the East playoff race and Derrick Rose's return on the horizon, it may behoove the coach to sit his All-Star center through the break in order to keep him more healthy for the stretch run.
