Watson Undergoes Foot Procedure

33
The Chicago Bulls weren't kidding when they kept saying C.J. Watson was playing through pain. Already battling lingering elbow and ankle issues, Watson underwent surgery on both feet Thursday morning after the team kept quiet the guard's painful plantar fasciitis that he played through. "It was hard," Watson said of playing through the condition. "I couldn't do all the things that I'm usually capable of doing. But I knew with Derrick (Rose) out, I had to give the team what I could." It's the second straight summer Watson has undergone a procedure to address plantar fasciitis. Watson had shock wave therapy performed, which is basically controlled blasts of sound waves to break up the damaged tissue.
