Joakim Noah’s inaugural season with New York has likely come to an end with the news the injury-plagued center needs arthroscopic knee surgery.

Noah has missed seven straight games due to a sore left hamstring. Although the knee wasn’t specified by sources, it likely involves the same leg plagued by the hamstring issues. Noah last had surgery in 2014 to remove damaged cartilage from his right knee.

Noah signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks last off-season. He is averaging 5 points and 8 rebounds.


Thanks Phil, the worst contract in the league is the gift that keeps on giving. Frankly, I’m getting Amar’e¬†flashbacks from this signing but at least Stat could get buckets on offense. Our silver lining is knowing we can finish the season with Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O’Quinn splitting center duties.
