New York Knicks center Joakim Noah will need surgery to repair a torn left rotator cuff. The former Chicago Bull star has months of recovery ahead of him, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.
Noah, 32, played in 46 games for the Knicks this season, averaging 5 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per-game.
The Knicks big man was suspended for 20 games, effectively ending his season, back in March.
Noah also had knee surgery earlier in 2017, and his left shoulder is one he’s injured before.
Meanwhile, Noah still has three full seasons left on a 4-year, $72 million deal he signed in 2016.
