Joakim Noah (illness) will miss Friday's game vs. the Hawks and Saturday's game vs. the Rockets.
Coach Jeff Hornacek said Noah did not make the two-game road trip with the team because he didn't want to risk Noah getting the other players sick. This has no fantasy implications, as Noah is not part of the rotation and has yet to appear in a regular season game this season. Nov 24 - 11:48 AM

Joakim Noah (illness) is listed as "out" in the game notes for Friday's contest vs. Atlanta.

No fantasy impact to note here, as Noah is not a part of the Knicks rotation. He has yet to be activated since he finished serving his 20-game suspension earlier this month.
Nov 24 - 9:52 AM

Joakim Noah, who has yet to be activated since returning from his suspension, said he "understands the situation."

The Knicks have four quality centers on their roster. Enes Kanter, Kyle O’Quinn and Willy Hernangomez are all ahead of Noah on the depth chart. Thus, it's hard to envision Noah finding a path to playing time as long as two of those three players are healthy. "I’m going to do my best in a team setting. That’s always been who I’ve been. I just want to be true to myself," said Noah. He should be left on waivers in all fantasy formats.
Nov 18 - 10:51 AM

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said Joakim Noah will remain on the inactive list going forward.

"Jo’s a great team guy," Hornacek said. "He wants us to win. He sees how they’re playing right now. He doesn’t want to have to rock the boat but he is competitive and he wants to be out there to help us." Hornacek added that Noah has handled this "professionally," but it's likely just a matter of time before the Knicks try to clean up their logjam at center.

Joakim Noah will not play Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

This will be the second game in a row that the Knicks will keep their second-highest paid player on the inactive roster, which indicates that Noah might not even be in the rotation this season. Leave him on the wire.
Nov 15 - 5:49 PM

Updating a previous report, Joakim Noah will remain on the inactive roster for Monday's matchup with the Cavs.

Noah has officially served his suspension, but his spot in the Knicks rotation remains a bit of a mystery. Maybe he'll be able to get out there for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, but he's not worth owning in any setting.
Nov 13 - 5:51 PM

Joakim Noah will return to the Knicks’ active roster on Monday.

Saturday's contest vs. the Kings will be Noah's 20th and final game on the suspended list. However, it's difficult to envision a path to playing time for Noah going forward. Both Enes Kanter and Kyle O'Quinn are playing relatively well, and Willy Hernangomez is chomping at the bit to get into games. "All I can do is just be as ready as possible," Noah said. "Whatever my role is, I’ll accept it." Noah can be left on waivers.

Nov 11 - 10:11 AM

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said he isn't sure what type of role Joakim Noah will have when he returns from his suspension.

"How we’re playing, there might be nights when guys get in and other nights when they don’t," Hornacek said. "If we all accept that we’re a team and we’re trying to do this together, then everybody’s contribution is important whether you’re playing or not." Noah is eligible to return on Nov. 12, but he'll be joining a crowded center rotation that includes Enes Kanter, Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez. Noah isn't a fantasy pickup and it's likely that the Knicks will shop him or KOQ.

Joakim Noah (illness) did not participate during Thursday's practice.

Noah is going to miss the first 12 games of the season due to a suspension, and he likely won't be a major part of the rotation in New York this season. He's not a viable draft target.
Oct 12 - 12:25 PM

Joakim Noah (illness) did not practice on Wednesday.

Despite being the second-highest paid player on the Knicks roster this season, Noah likely won't be on the court enough to make a difference in most leagues.
Oct 11 - 12:03 PM

Joakim Noah (shoulder) had one point and four rebounds in nine minutes during Sunday's preseason game.

Noah debuted on Friday, playing 12 minutes, and the Knicks are in no rush to increase his workload. He's suspended for the first dozen games of the regular season, and upon his return he'll be fighting for minutes with guys like Willy Hernangomez and Enes Kanter. Considering the Knicks are building for the future, and Noah is a holdover from the Phil Jackson era, there's no reason to think he'll help fantasy owners.
Oct 8 - 10:41 PM

Joakim Noah says he will be content coming off the bench this season.

With Noah suspended for the first 12 games of the season, Willy Hernangomez and Enes Kanter are battling to be named the starting center on opening night. Once he returns in mid-November, Noah understands he'll likely have to contribute as a reserve. "That’s probably what it’s going to be," said Noah. "Right now we have a lot of talented players at my position. That’s just the reality. So it’s about being as supportive as possible, and then when my number’s called going out there and making an impact."
Oct 7 - 10:31 AM

Joakim Noah scored two points with five rebounds, two assists and one block in 12 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

He's talked about feeling like a rookie, but Noah had some of the offense go through him today. He is fully expected to come off the bench this year and he's still suspended for the first dozen games.
Oct 6 - 10:27 PM

Joakim Noah (rest) will make his preseason debut Friday night vs. the Wizards.

Noah did not suit up for the Knicks preseason opener on Tuesday, as coach Jeff Hornacek wanted to rest him after eight straight days of practice. Noah, who had shoulder surgery last April, will be suspended for the first 12 games of the regular season but has managed to avoid any injury setbacks over the first couple weeks of training camp. Noah acknowledged that he will likely come off the bench when he finishes serving his suspension.
Oct 6 - 11:34 AM

Joakim Noah (rest) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Nets.

Jeff Hornacek is dishing out a rest day to the oft-injured big man after eight straight days of practice, but there's no injury here. Noah is going to miss the first 12 games of the season as he finishes serving his suspension from last year, and he'll be competing for minutes with Willy Hernangomez and Enes Kanter, so it's unlikely he'll be making any noise in fantasy hoops this season.
