Noel tallied two points (1-2 FG), four rebounds, three steals, two blocks and one assist across 17 minutes in Tuesday's 108-94 loss to the Jazz.
Noel has not scored more than six points in any game as a Knick so far, but he's making up for that with solid value on defense. He's forced two or more turnovers in nearly half of his matchups this season, all from the bench. Noel is averaging 1.1 steals and 1.6 blocks across 16.2 minutes in 17 games.
Noel missed his only field-goal attempt and both free-throw tries in Friday's loss to the Kings, though he did contribute seven rebounds over 19 minutes.
Noel put together a solid stat line Thursday against the Warriors with 11 boards and four blocked shots, but he did next to nothing aside from crashing the boards Friday. The veteran center has yet to score in double digits this season and has grabbed five or fewer rebounds 10 times in 15 games, making him little more than a shot-blocking specialist in the fantasy realm.
Noel (back) is available Sunday at Boston, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.
The 26-year-old was considered probable with back soreness and will come off the bench versus the Celtics. Mitchell Robinson (heel) is also available, so Noel will fill his usual role as New York's backup center.
Noel is probable for Sunday's game against the Celtics due to a sore lower back.
Noel should play Sunday and is unlikely to be hampered by what is seemingly a minor injury. Over the past three games, he's averaging 3.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in 15.7 minutes.
Noel is only averaging 13.3 minutes per game over his last four appearances.
The big man missed two games in early January due to an ankle problem but hasn't been able to post solid numbers since then, averaging 1.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game over his last four contests. He is yet to play 20 or more minutes in a single game this season, and it seems he'd need an injury to Mitchell Robinson, Julius Randle or Taj Gibson to have a shot at a bigger role moving forward. Right now, his contributions aren't enough to make him valuable not even in the deepest formats.
Noel (ankle) is available for Friday's game against the Thunder, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.
As expected, Noel will make his return following a two-game absence. Over his past three appearances, he's averaging 4.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals in 17.0 minutes.
Noel (ankle) was upgraded to probable for Friday's game against the Thunder.
The 26-year-old was originally considered questionable for Friday's contest, but his outlook has apparently improved after missing the past two games. Assuming he's available, Noel should operate at New York's reserve center behind starter Mitchell Robinson.
Noel (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Thunder, Ian Begley of SNY reports.
He missed the last two games with a sprained left ankle, but there's hope that Noel will be able to return to active status Friday night. Playing behind Mitchell Robinson, Noel has averaged 3.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 14.8 minutes per game this season.
Noel (ankle) has been downgraded to out for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.
The 26-year-old was originally considered questionable for Wednesday's contest, and he'll miss his second straight game due to the left ankle sprain. Omari Spellman (knee) could make his season debut and operate as the reserve center behind Mitchell Robinson in Noel's absence.
Noel (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.
Noel missed his first game of the season during Monday's win over the Hawks, and his status is also uncertain for tomorrow's game. Mitchell Robinson and Julius Randle would likely see increased roles if Noel is held out of his second-consecutive contest.
Noel isn't available to play Monday against the Hawks due to an ankle sprain, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.
There was no indication that Noel was unavailable prior to Monday's tip, but the Knicks have since reported that the Kentucky product is injured. It's unclear if he'll be ready to roll for Wednesday's matchup against Utah.
Noel has come off the bench in all five of the Knicks' games to begin the season, but he's still averaging 1.4 blocks per game.
Noel has long been one of the league's best per-minute blocks and steals accumulators, and that's been the case again this season. Despite seeing just 14.4 minutes per game, Noel is averaging nearly a block-and-a-half, while adding 0.8 steals. Tom Thibodeau appears to have settled on Mitchell Robinson as the full-time starter at center, but Noel would have some value if Robinson misses time at any point.
Noel (knee) returned to practice Monday, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.
Noel was held out of Friday's preseason finale against Cleveland with a sore knee, but the issue doesn't appear to be anything serious. Expect Noel to be available -- and likely start -- Wednesday's regular-season opener against Indiana.
Noel (knee) is out for Friday's preseason finale against the Cavaliers, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.
As expected, Noel will miss Friday's action due to left knee soreness. In the preseason, he averaged 6.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 steals in 22.9 minutes. He also started both contests he was available for. Assuming Noel is healthy by Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Cavaliers, it seems likely he'll enter the season as the starter over Mitchell Robinson.
Noel (knee) will probably be out for Friday's preseason finale against the Cavaliers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
After playing in the team's first two preseason games, Noel will likely end up missing the final two due to left knee soreness. In the preseason, he averaged 6.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 steals in 22.9 minutes. He also started both contests he was available for. Assuming Noel is healthy by Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Cavaliers, it seems likely he'll enter the season as the starter over Mitchell Robinson.
Noel (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against Cleveland, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
Noel was considered doubtful with left knee soreness, so it's no surprise he's unavailable. Mitchell Robinson will operate as the starting center in Wednesday's exhibition.
Noel is doubtful for Wednesday's preseason action against the Cavaliers due to a sore left knee.
Noel has been the Knicks' starter thus far in the preseason, so, assuming he's sidelined, we could see Mitchell Robinson get the nod.
Noel racked up 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds, an assist, two blocks and a steal in 25 minutes of action during the Knicks' 90-84 victory against the Pistons on Friday.
Noel and incumbent Mitchell Robinson (22 minutes) had similar playing time, but it was Noel who drew the start -- something that may be symbolic of a season-long trend. Noel recorded a team-high plus-11 in the box score and might be worthy of a late-round flier in deeper leagues.
Noel is starting in Friday's preseason opener against the Pistons, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
It seemed likely Mitchell Robinson would snag the starting job this season, but it appears Noel may end up making the opening tip every night. If Noel starts and sees minutes in the mid-to-upper-20s, he should have fantasy relevance in standard leagues. When seeing at least 20 minutes last season, Noel averaged 10.1 points on 72.4 percent shooting, 6.2 rebounds, 1.7 blocks, 1.3 steals and 1.1 assists.
Noel will sign a one-year, $5 million deal with the Knicks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
After a two-year stint in OKC, Noel will join the Knicks on a one-year pact. Last season, the center averaged 7.4 points on 68.4 percent shooting, 4.9 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 steals in 18.5 minutes. With the Knicks, it's possible he garners a similar workload behind projected starter Mitchell Robinson. In deeper fantasy formats, Noel could have some value given his defensive ability and good percentages.
