DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah has acknowledged that he is willing to miss next weekend's NBA All-Star Game if his injured right foot doesn't improve.

Noah said Sunday that as much as he wants to play in the All-Star Game, he must put his team first.

"To me, (the All-Star Game is) pretty important," Noah said after Sunday's practice at the Berto Center. "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."
