Joakim Noah walked around the practice facility on Wednesday morning with a much less noticeable limp, but the plantar fasciitis in his right foot was troublesome enough to keep him out against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.

Shooting guard Marco ­Belinelli [abdominal strain], as well as Rip Hamilton [back] also missed the game, but the news was good on Noah and Belinelli, with both expected back Saturday against Dallas.
