Noah won't play vs. Pacers

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau revealed before Saturday's game against Indiana that Joakim Noah has had a recurrence of plantar fasciitis in his feet. Noah will not play against the Pacers and is most likely out for Sunday's game at Minnesota.

Noah missed three games in early February with a sore right foot, but has played well since returning to the lineup.

On the positive side, Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson -- who returned from injuries on Thursday against Portland -- are expected to play. Derrick Rose (knee) and Rip Hamilton (back) remain sidelined.

David West (back) and Danny Granger (knee) are out for Indiana, which is trying to complete a four-game season sweep of the Bulls.
