Valentine (ankle) was held out of practice Tuesday, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Valentine has demonstrated improvement in recent days, but coach Fred Hoiberg opted to limit him to conditioning only Tuesday. At this point, it remains unclear as to whether Valentine will be able to play in Thursday's preseason finale, but the Bulls are more concerned about his ability to take the court when the regular season begins next week.
