Bulls’ Joakim Noah out with plantar fasciitis

Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah missed last night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets last night with a foot injury, and it appears that he’s once again dealing with plantar fasciitis, according to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago.

Noah could be dealing with a bout of plantar fasciitis, the ailment that plagued the All-Star center in his left foot during the 2009-10 season.

Noah didn’t participate in the Bulls’ shoot around yesterday. While most of his injury issues have stemmed from ankle ailments, Sam notes that plantar fasciitis is a condition that can either reoccur or disappear completely during the course of a player’s career.

Plantar fasciitis is a wear-and-tear injury that a lot of NBA players deal with, according to Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk, something that inflames the bottom of one’s foot. There’s no telling how long the injury will sideline Noah, as the only recovery is resting the foot.
