Joakim Noah leaves Knicks for personal reasons, will miss two games

He missed the first 12 games of the season due to a performance-enhancing-drug suspension, and he has played just seven of 37 games since (40 minutes). Noah will make $18.5 million next season and $19.2 million in 2019-20.

"We're not going to comment on that stuff", he said.

However, the New York Post reported Friday, citing a person familiar with the situation, that Noah might not rejoin the team until next Thursday in Milwaukee, which means he'd miss two additional contests.

Frustrated by the lack of minutes and lack of an existent role within Jeff Hornacek's team, the 6-foot-11 big man took a leave of absence for what the Knicks described as "personal reasons" and left the club Thursday morning in Denver - an absence that could mark his last stint in orange and blue.

Hornacek declined to confirm Thursday whether Noah's departure was over his playing time. Noah, according to the source, was upset over getting a quick hook.

Noah, 32, signed the now largely untradeable contract in the summer of 2016, when Phil Jackson was the Knicks' president. "Works hard to keep himself in shape". With Noah departing, the Knicks summoned rookie shooting guard Damyean Dotson, who was amid an extended G League stint starting January 15.

"He's the type of kid who wants to play", Hornacek said of Dotson, per Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. "After all this having to go back and forth between inactive, we felt it would be good for him to have a stretch of (G League) games".

Noah has stated publicly that the Knicks were looking to sever ties with him.

The Knicks were tight-lipped about the reason for Noah's absence. "He's professional that way. It's always tough when you want to play".
