Joakim Noah did not participate in Chicago Bulls practice on Sunday due to his ongoing plantar fasciitis and admits he may miss next weekend's NBA All-Star Game with the injury.
"It's pretty important," Noah said of his first All-Star Game. "Well, it's not that important, but it's something I want to do. But I also have to do what's right for the team. There's obviously a bigger picture than the All-Star Game. We'll see."
Noah, who is confident he will play in the Bulls' final two games before the All-Star break, was selected as a reserve for the Eastern Conference team.
