The Chicago Bull’s starting center, Joakim Noah, could sit out of the NBA All Star game next weekend if his right foot does not get better. Noah played last Friday against the Utah Jazz, but said his foot still bothered him afterwards. To me, the All-Star Game is pretty important,” Noah said after Sunday’s practice. “I mean, it’s not that important, but it’s something I want to do. I also have to do what’s right for the team. There’s obviously a bigger picture than the All-Star game. We’ll see.” The Bulls are currently sitting at the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and have exceeded many people’s expectations on how well this team would do without their star Derrick Rose, who tore his ACL during last season’s playoffs. Noah has been averaging 11.9 ppg, 11.2 rpg, 2 blkpg, and is a large part of the Bull’s success this year. This year is Noah’s first selection as an All Star.
