The Clippers waived Noah on Tuesday, and the veteran center is "likely headed toward retirement," Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Noah has struggled to stay healthy and find a role late in his career, appearing in just 129 games over the past five seasons. That said, he was excellent during his prime years in Chicago, making one All-NBA team, three All-Defense teams and earning 2013-14 Defensive Player of the Year honors while also coming in fourth in MVP voting. Between his two All-Star seasons, Noah averaged 12.3 points, 11.2 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.2 steals in 35.9 minutes.
Noah finished with four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 FT), five rebounds and three assists during Wednesday's scrimmage against the Magic. In his first game with the Clippers, Noah got the start at center with Ivica Zubac unavailable. The veteran saw 15 minutes of action in his first NBA game since March of 2019. Assuming Noah appears in a playoff game for the Clips, it'll be his first postseason action since 2015.
Noah is set to sign with the Clippers for the remainder of the 2019-20 season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Noah's 10-day contract was set to expire June 23, but the Clippers have decided to keep him around despite the veteran not appearing in a game for the club. Should he make his debut at some point, it would mark Noah's first action of the campaign.
Noah (Not Injury Related) will not be active for Tuesday's matchup with the Warriors, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports. Noah traveled with the team to Golden State, but his debut will have to wait. His next chance to suit up with the Clippers for the first time will come Friday against the Nets.
Noah (not injury-related) will travel with the Clippers ahead of Tuesday's game against Golden State, though it's unclear whether he'll play, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports. Noah has yet to practice with the team, so while he may technically be available for Tuesday's clash, the team could hold him out until Friday against the Nets. An update should come closer to tipoff.
