Nocioni out again after aggravating foot injury

Chicago forward Andres NOCIONI missed his eighth game in the last nine Friday night when the Bulls faced the Washington Wizards.

Nocioni aggravated a foot injury Thursday night against Cleveland, his first appearance after sitting out seven straight games. He played nearly 15 minutes, scoring five points against the Cavs but was very sore after the game.

Bulls coach Scott SKILES said NOCIONI would be examined by a team doctor and they would map out a strategy for dealing with the injury over the final two months.

Skiles acknowledged it was a "real possibilty" that NOCIONI could be out for extended period of time. "It's very painful and it takes time to heal," he said of the injury.

NOCIONI, a standout in international play for Argentina, is in his third season with the Bulls and is averaging 14.8 points and nearly six rebounds.
