Noah will be inactive for Saturday's game against the Bulls, Steve Popper of The Record reports. Noah has played in just two of the last five games for the Knicks, but only saw single-digit minutes during those contests. He'll return to the inactive list Saturday, though even when does get the promotion back to the active roster, he's not a viable fantasy option.
Noah finished with three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in eight minutes during Monday's 115-97 loss to the Pacers. Noah finished with season highs in essentially every category in this his second appearance of the campaign. While the absence of Kristaps Porzingis (ankle/illness) could mean a few extra minutes for Noah in the immediate future, the Knicks likely have too many centers for the 32-year-old veteran to carve out a reliable role.
Noah will be active and available to play in Sunday's matchup with the Magic, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports. Noah has played a total of three minutes since returning from suspension, often finding himself on the inactive list. However, with both Kristaps Porzingis (ankle/illness) and Tim Hardaway (leg) injured and filling the two inactive slots, Noah will bump up to the active roster. That being said, Noah will likely only see a handful of minutes at best and won't be on the fantasy radar, as the likes of Enes Kanter, Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez all sit ahead of him on the depth chart.
Noah will be inactive for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports. With Enes Kanter (back) healthy, Noah will be inactive and not see the floor. That doesn't come as too much of a surprise, however, as he's played just three minutes this season and doesn't seem to be a priority of coach Jeff Hornacek's moving forward.
Noah had two points (1-1 FG), one rebound, and one block in three minutes during Monday's 103-91 loss to the Trail Blazers. Noah made his season debut following his 20-game suspension and subsequent inactive tags and illness. There weren't many minutes to go around even before he returned, as Enes Kanter (back), Kyle O'Quinn, and Willy Hernangomez were all splitting the minutes at center, with the latter often being left out of the rotation entirely. As a result, it's not wise to expect Noah to force his way into playing a very meaningful role.
