by May 17, 2013

Head coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters that center Joakim Noah may need right foot surgery due to plantar fasciitis. The Bulls hope that rehab will suffice to get rid of the nagging injury. Per the Chicago Sun-Times: “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 (Deng). We have to get him completely healthy again. Those are two players that we’ll be on top of right away.'”
