Knick’s Noah could miss rest of season with knee injury


Knicks big-man Joakim Noah’s recent knee injury just keeps the problems coming for the already disappointing New York Knicks.

Noah, who New York signed as a free agent in July, had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Monday and could miss the remainder of the Knicks’ season. The surgery was to remove loose body in his knee.

This same knee was giving him troubles in 2014 and was repaired via surgery in the offseason of that same year.

His current injury is to be reevaluated in three to four weeks, but with only six weeks remaining in the season, it is unclear if Noah will suit up for the Knicks again this season.

Noah has missed the previous seven games while dealing with a lingering hamstring issue. If he remains out for the remainder of the season, this will be the eighth time in his last few seasons that he will have played less than 68 games.

After signing his current $72 million contract, Noah has failed to live up to his expectations while playing in his hometown. He has played in 46 of the 59 games this season, and averages five points and 8.7 rebounds per game.

The Knicks currently sit in 12th place in the Eastern Conference standings with a record of 24-35.
