Rookie Taj Gibson didn’t practice again Wednesday because of plantar fasciitis of the left foot, but he hopes to play Thursday when the Bulls visit the Boston Celtics.

“The doctors checked it out; it’s getting better,” Gibson said. “I’m just taking it slow. The last MRI showed I just stretched it. I’m happy I didn’t tear it like Danny Granger from Indiana because then you’re out at least two months. I’m fortunate to have a slight stretch. So right now, I’m getting a lot of treatment for the next game.”
