An MRI of Joakim Noah's left ankle confirmed a sprain and he will not play on Thursday against the Wizards.
There are no details of a timetable, but the Knicks will likely be taking it easy on their oft-injured veteran. With him out, Kyle O'Quinn will look to bounce back from a dreadful start on Wednesday. He's still worth a look in season-long leagues or for DFS. Plus, Willy Hernangomez should benefit and is worth a look as a punt or pickup in deep leagues. Jan 19 - 6:03 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) is not expected to play on Thursday vs. the Wizards.

He's going to have an MRI on Thursday morning but it's a safe bet that he will miss his second straight game -- Noah was in so much pain on Wednesday that he didn't even try to warm up after his ankle swelled up on the plane. Kyle O'Quinn started in Noah's place on Wednesday, but flopped in a big way with just two points in 10 minutes. Willy Hernangomez scored 17 points off the bench with 11 rebounds in 20 minutes and Marshall Plumlee also had a nice game with five points, seven rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 20 minutes, but this is a situation for fantasy owners to avoid until someone separates themselves from the pack.

Joakim Noah (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Celtics.

The 31-year-old center also needs an MRI. He has a sore left ankle and didn't go through shootaround. Noah has been surprisingly healthy lately, but he could miss additional time going forward given his track record. With him out, Kyle O'Quinn should get a bump in minutes and the same goes for Willy Hernangomez. If you need a big man, KOQ is worth a pickup.
Jan 18 - 6:03 PM

Joakim Noah (sore left ankle) did not go through shootaround and he is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) is also questionable to play, and if neither guy is able to give it a go, Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez would likely pick up most of the five-man minutes in New York. O'Quinn is about as hit-or-miss as they come, and as a starter this season he owns averages of 8.5 points, 8.8 boards and 0.8 blocks per game, so he's basically just a streamer if he gets the start. Stay tuned.
Jan 18 - 11:14 AM

Joakim Noah scored seven points with 17 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Monday.

This comes on the second half of a back-to-back set, which is way more playing time than he's played previously with 21.8 minutes per game on no rest. Noah will likely see a dip in playing time at some point for a number of reasons, so he's only worth a look in 14-team leagues with his recent solid play.
Jan 16 - 4:06 PM

Joakim Noah has been hampered by a sore shoulder over the last 10 days, but is still playing his best basketball of the season.

In the 11 games the Knicks have played since Christmas, Noah is averaging 11.1 rebounds and 8.0 points (on 57.4 percent shooting). And despite dealing with a nagging shoulder issue, Noah feels there is still plenty of room left for improvement. "I feel like I can still do better," Noah said. "I feel like there’s another level that I want to get to and have to keep pushing and getting better." Noah will likely see more minutes if Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) continues to miss time.
Jan 14 - 11:59 AM

Joakim Noah is dealing with discomfort in his sore right shoulder.

Noah has been wincing in pain on occasions during games and often has his shoulder wrapped in ice when he's on the bench. "He’s had it looked at," coach Jeff Hornacek said. "There’s just some little stuff in there. When he lifts his arm in one certain way he feels it catch." Asked about his shoulder, Noah said, "It’s fine." Although his offensive output has been frustratingly inconsistent, Noah is averaging 11.1 rebounds over the Knicks last 11 games.
Jan 13 - 9:55 AM

Joakim Noah scored 12 points with 15 rebounds, one assist and one block in 27 minutes on Thursday night against Chicago.

Noah came out to play vs. his former team, finishing one rebound shy of tying his season high of 16 boards in a game. He is playing through a sore shoulder, but it did not appear to be affecting him in tonight’s matchup. His minutes are inconsistent, but Noah is a good source of rebounds and can help fantasy owners who are struggling in that category.
Jan 12 - 10:59 PM

Joakim Noah finished Wednesday's game with seven points (3-of-6 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), six rebounds, two steals, one block and zero turnovers in 20 minutes of action.

Noah had a wrap on his right shoulder when he wasn't playing, and admitted recently that the surgically-repaired shoulder is "always there" as a background concern. The slumping Knicks recently held a team meeting to discuss their issues, and they may need to meet a few more times after tonight's disastrous 98-97 loss to the Sixers.
Jan 11 - 10:06 PM

Joakim Noah said that he's finally finding his form in New York.

"I feel like I'm playing better. I feel like I'm starting to get into a better rhythm," Noah said. "It's tough. This team is going through some adversity right now. This is when you find out who plays through it and who doesn't." Noah added that he feels healthy for the most part, but did say that his surgically-repaired shoulder is "always there." He's averaging 8.6 points, 11.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 0.8 blocks over his last five games, but his ceiling isn't as high with Kristaps Porzingis healthy again.
Jan 9 - 11:17 AM

Joakim Noah scored eight points with 16 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He may have hurt his shoulder in the second half and came out of the game. While Noah did have a left shoulder injury last season, he returned and looked fine. He's played very well over the last three without Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles), averaging 10.3 points, 14.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.0 steals. He's almost a lock to either miss time or have his minutes cut, but feel free to pick him up and ride him while he's going strong.
Jan 4 - 10:13 PM

Joakim Noah scored eight points with 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 33 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

Noah was also solid in his previous game with 15 points, 16 rebounds, two assists and one block on Saturday, but Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) has missed both of those contests. Noah finished 3-of-7 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line against the Magic, and he's been far too inconsistent to trust him on Wednesday vs. the Bucks with Porzingis expected back.
Jan 2 - 11:34 PM

Joakim Noah scored 15 points with 16 rebounds, two assists and one block in Saturday’s loss to the Rockets.

Noah is seeing more court time, playing at least 28 minutes in four of his last six games and tonight he recorded his third double-double during that stretch. He benefited from the absence of Kyle O’Quinn (flu) tonight, but outings like these won’t come often. He is far too inconsistent to be considered in standard leagues.

Joakim Noah was exposed against the Pelicans on Friday, finishing scoreless with six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 16 minutes.

He finished with a +/- rating of -12 as Anthony Davis had a field day against him in the first quarter. Noah had 14 points and 16 rebounds in his previous outing, but the $72 million man has been inconsistent all season. The Knicks usually turn to Kyle O'Quinn (five minutes) or Willy Hernangomez (seven minutes) when Noah is having an off night, but they turned to Kristaps Porzingis at center this time even though coach Jeff Hornacek has said that he doesn't want to use KP there. Noah is not a standard-league asset.

Joakim Noah double-doubled with 14 points and 16 rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks

He logged a season-high 38 minutes in order to matchup with Dwight Howard, finishing 5-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line with three assists, two steals and one block in what was easily his best game of the season. Noah's minutes fluctuate from night to night and Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez are legitimate threats, so he likely won't be a fun player to own moving forward.
