Late Sunday in Auburn Hills, Mich., after playing 22 minutes in his first action after missing eight games with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Joakim Noah admitted he'd have to play through the condition the remainder of the season.

Noah wasn't kidding.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said Noah suffered "a little bit of a setback" and didn't participate in the Bulls' light practice Monday. Though Thibodeau didn't rule out Noah for Tuesday's home game against the Toronto Raptors, it's extremely unlikely the center will play.

"It’s a tough one," Thibodeau said. "You never really know with that type of injury."

Noah has undergone myriad forms of treatment, including bouts of platelet-rich plasma therapy. But nothing has fully cured the condition, which also affected his left foot two seasons ago.

"There’s always concern," Thibodeau said. "He just has to keep working at it. That’s what he’s supposed to do. He’s a pro. A pro has a responsibility to do everything he can to come back as quickly as he can.
