Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah returned for the team’s
regular season finale, playing limited minutes off the bench in preparation for
the playoffs. There was thought that he could fill a similar role as the
postseason began, but now there’s question if he’ll participate in the first
round at all, according to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago.
“I’ve got a tear in my foot. It is what it is. I’m upset at myself because I let this linger for a long time and I have no one to blame but myself. I just wish that I was a little bit smarter. I played games in the regular season that I shouldn’t have played. It’s going to be tough, but these are the cards that I was dealt and I’m just going to do the best that I can to get back as quick as I can.”
