Joakim Noah of the New York Knicks looks on against the Memphis Grizzlies during the first half at Madison Square Garden

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.

Joakim Noah watches from the Knicks' bench against the Trail Blazers at Madison Square Garden on December 27, 2017.

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.

Jonny Evans could be sold at right price, says Alan Pardew
Jonny Evans will be allowed to leave West Brom during the January transfer window if the price is right, Alan Pardew has revealed. The Gunners have been talking with West Brom for the past fortnight and trying to agree a fee for the Northern Ireland global .

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".

Playing time has been hard to come by for Noah this season. This comes after struggling a year ago with 5.0 points and 8.8 rebounds per game in 46 contests.

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".
