DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Joakim Noah's status for the Chicago Bulls' first-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets is in question because of his injured right foot.

Noah did little in practice on Friday. He says he's not sure if he'll play in Game 1 at Brooklyn on Saturday, and coach Tom Thibodeau called him day to day for the series.

Noah battled plantar fasciitis in the past and the issue cropped up again this season, causing him to miss 15 games since the start of February.

The news was better on Taj Gibson (knee), with Thibodeau hoping his minutes won't be limited.
