Bulls C Joakim Noah's foot feeling better

Entering the Chicago Bulls opening playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets, center Joakim Noah wasn't sure if he'd be able to suit up at all due to a plantar fasciitis injury. Not only did Noah play in Game 4 on Saturday, but he was a key player in the team's three-overtime victory over the Nets.

Over roughly 40 minutes -- 10 more than coach Tom Thibodeau expected to get from the big man -- Noah scored 15 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and finished with four blocks. Following the game, he described it as a miracle to reporters -- including K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune.

"It's a miracle," said Noah, who is playing through plantar fasciitis in his right foot. "Before the series started, I thought I wasn't going to be able to play."

The Bulls had initially expected Noah to see roughly 30 minutes of action Saturday. However, as the marathon contest progressed, doctors and training staff alike said that it appeared the center was OK to continue. His plantar fasciitis will continue to be monitored, but Chicago is certainly hoping that they'll be able to count on this type of production from Noah.
