  • Knicks' Nerlens Noel: Sitting out second straight game

    Noel (knee) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Hornets.

    After he made his return to action in Wednesday's blowout win over the Mavericks following a 10-day stint in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Noel is now sidelined with an injury for the second straight game. On a fortunate note, Noel is dealing with soreness in his left knee this time around, after right knee soreness had previously cost him time earlier in the season. Noel's absence Monday should allow Taj Gibson to hold down a spot in the rotation as the backup to starting center Mitchell Robinson.

  • Knicks' Nerlens Noel: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Noel cleared the NBA's health and safety protocols and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest the Pacers due to conditioning concerns.

    Noel entered protocols Dec. 22 and has been away from the team for two weeks. The Knicks currently have Noel, Mitchell Robinson, Jericho Sims and Julius Randle all listed as questionable with return to conditioning designations, so it's unclear what New York's frontcourt will look like until more information is provided closer to tipoff. However, Randle and Robinson both cleared protocols Monday, giving them an extra day of practice to get back into game shape. It's unlikely Noel will be able to return to game action the same day he clears protocols, but there's still a possibility he is available. If Noel doesn't suit up Tuesday, his next chance to return will come Thursday against the Celtics.

  • Knicks' Nerlens Noel: Remains out Tuesday

    Noel (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) remains out for Tuesday's game against the Pacers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Since he first entered the protocols Dec. 22 and has now been away from the team for two weeks, Noel may be struggling to fully move past symptoms of the virus. Whenever he's eventually cleared to exit the protocols, Noel could need a few days to get his conditioning in order. On a positive note for the Knicks, Mitchell Robinson and Jericho Sims both cleared the protocols Monday and are listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest, so the team should have more depth on hand to fill minutes at center.

  • Knicks' Nerlens Noel: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Noel was placed in the league's health and safety protocols Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Noel's placement in protocols brings the Knicks' total tally to seven players currently sidelined due to the league's health and safety rules, though New York could be getting a handful of those guys back for Thursday's contest against the Wizards. However, Noel will definitely be unavailable against Washington, so in his absence, Mitchell Robinson will likely slide back into the starting lineup while Taj Gibson operates as the primary backup.

    Noel remained in the starting lineup for a fifth consecutive game Saturday, and he finished with the second-highest rebound total on the team in the narrow loss. Although the 27-year-old's scoring output has remained limited due to his lack of shot volume, he's shown glimpses of fantasy production due to his well-rounded stat lines.
