Joakim Noah (foot) is targeting Thursday's game in Denver for his return.
When Noah first battled plantar fasciitis back in 2009-10, he tried to play through it for a month before shutting it down. He's learned from his mistake and is taking a proactive approach this time. "I feel pretty good, but just give it a couple more days and try to go on Thursday," Noah said "... I'm just moving in the right direction and hopefully by Thursday I'll be ready to go." Taj Gibson will remain a strong hold until we actually see Noah back on the floor.
