Joakim Noah won't play for France in the World Cup of Basketball this summer.
"It wouldn't be fair first of all, for my teammates, to even think about anything past today," Noah told ESPNChicago.com after Wednesday's shootaround. "When the French people ask me about [playing], it's hard to predict what's going to happen next year, or in two years. I live my life day to day, and I feel like the NBA season is, it's brutal. To play all year, I think it's something that is too much for me. So definitely not this year."
Noah sat out the 2012 Olympics due to plantar fasciitis.
