Knicks’ Noah Has Knee Surgery, Reportedly Will Miss Rest of Season
The Knicks announced Monday that Joakim Noah had a left knee arthroscopy to remove a loose body and will be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks.
The Vertical reported that Noah, who hasn’t played since a Feb. 4 loss to Cleveland, is done for the season.
The 32-year-old Noah is in the first year of a four-year, $72-million deal that and is increasingly looking like a bust.
He averaged five points and 8.7 rebounds in 46 starts.
Hornacek asked if Noah’s viewed as a starter next season. As expected, he said that things will be open for competition at beginning of year
