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.
Noah will sign with the Clippers and is expected to join the team next week, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The deal will start as a 10-day contract.
Noah appeared in 42 games for the Grizzlies last season, averaging 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 16.5 minutes. In joining the Clippers, he'll presumably act as a depth option behind Montrezl Harrell and Ivica Zubac most nights. Noah does bring some passing ability to the table, which neither Harrell or Zubac are known for. However, from a fantasy perspective, Noah joining the Clippers probably doesn't result in anything actionable outside of the very deepest of leagues.
Noah is expected to work out for the Clippers this week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Noah was in the running for a roster spot with the Lakers last month, but the team ultimately opted to go with Dwight Howard in the wake of DeMarcus Cousins' torn ACL. Now, Los Angeles' other team has interest in the veteran center, who acquitted himself well in a resurgent half-season with the Grizzlies in 2018-19. If the Clippers were to sign Noah, it would likely be for depth purposes, but the 34-year-old put up impressive averages of 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.2 blocks/steals in just 16.5 minutes per game a year ago.
Noah is expected to work out for the Lakers in the coming days, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Per Wojnarowski, the Lakers are considering a number of veteran centers to fill the void left by DeMarcus Cousins (knee), with Noah, Dwight Howard, Mo Speights and Marcin Gortat all in consideration. While Howard is the most accomplished of the four, Noah would be an interesting fit in Los Angeles, given his two-way skill set as a defender and distributor. The 34-year-old's best years are behind him, but he had a surprisingly resurgent campaign in Memphis last season, appearing in 42 games and averaging 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists in just over 16 minutes per contest.
Noah (knee) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.
Noah's sore right knee cost him the Grizzlies' final nine games of the season, but the veteran center probably performed well enough prior to being shut down to generate renewed interest around the league as he heads into free agency this summer. While teams won't promise Noah anything more than a backup role, the 34-year-old made an impact in that capacity over 42 games with Memphis. He wraps up the 2018-19 campaign with averages of 7.1 points (on 51.6 percent shooting from the field), 5.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 0.7 blocks in 16.5 minutes per game.
Noah (knee) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.
The veteran will miss an eighth consecutive game with a sore knee, and with the Grizzlies on the first night of a back-to-back, we've probably seen the last of Noah for this season.
Noah (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.
Noah will be in street clothes for a seventh consecutive contest while tending to the sore right knee, an injury that could very well keep him sidelined for the Grizzlies' season-ending back-to-back set Tuesday versus the Pistons and Wednesday against the Warriors. With Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) and Jaren Jackson (thigh) also unavailable, Ivan Rabb should make another start and handle the bulk of the minutes at center.
Noah (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Dallas.
Noah's in jeopardy of missing a seventh-straight game due to a sore right knee. With just three games remaining, it seems unlikely that Noah will return to the court this season despite the questionable designation.
Noah (knee) will not play in Friday's game against the Mavericks.
This will be Noah's sixth straight absence while he nurses right knee soreness, and at this point in the season, with just three games remaining, the team doesn't have much reason to bring the veteran big man back.
Noah (knee) is questionable for Friday's contest against the Mavericks.
Noah has been out each of the past five games while recovering from right knee soreness. It's possible he makes his return Friday, and more information may arrive following the Grizzlies' morning shootaround.
Noah (knee) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Trailblazers, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports.
Noah will miss his fifth straight contest as he continues to deal with right knee soreness. It's unknown if he will return this season, but at this time he should be considered questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks.
Noah (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game at Portland.
Noah has missed the last four contests due to right knee soreness but could possibly return to action Wednesday, bearing any major issues. In his time with Memphis so far this season, Noah is averaging 7.1 points and 5.7 rebounds over 42 games played.
Noah (knee) will not play in Sunday's game against the Clippers.
Noah will miss his fourth straight game as he continues to deal with right knee soreness. His next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Trailblazers and he should be considered questionable for that game.
Noah (knee) is out Saturday against the Suns.
Right knee soreness will keep Noah out for a third straight game, and it'll be his fourth game missed in five tries. His next chance to play arrives Sunday against the Clippers.
Noah (knee) won't play Wednesday against the Warriors.
Noah is on track to miss his second consecutive matchup due to right knee soreness, but he'll continue to be considered day-to-day. His next opportunity to return will come Saturday in Phoenix.
Noah (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Oklahoma City, Phillip Dean of Fox Sports South reports.
This update isn't surprising, as Noah was previously listed as doubtful on the Grizzlies' injury report with a knee injury. He'll be evaluated on a daily basis leading up to Wednesday's clash with Golden State.
