Mar. 25 7:18 AM PT8:18 AM MT9:18 AM CT10:18 AM ET14:18 GMT22:18 7:18 AM MST9:18 AM EST18:18 UAE15:1810:18 ET8:18 AM CTNaN:� - Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said Noah was meeting with team doctors Monday in hopes he could be cleared to return to practice Tuesday and potentially begin his 20-game suspension for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy with Wednesday's game against Miami.
Analysis: Noah is recovering from left knee surgery and on Saturday was suspended by the league for testing positive for a substance found in some over-the-counter supplements. The suspension begins when Noah is healthy enough to play, so the Knicks would consult with the league to determine if he has reached that point.
Feb. 5 10:10 AM PT11:10 AM MT12:10 PM CT1:10 PM ET18:10 GMT2:10 11:10 AM MST1:10 PM EST22:10 UAE19:1013:10 ET12:10 PM CTNaN:� - Noah had a left knee arthroscopy Monday to remove a loose body. The Knicks said he will be re-evaluated in three to four weeks.
Analysis: Noah had already missed the last seven games with a sore left hamstring. Noah has had a hard time staying healthy, and although he is still a solid rebounder, he offers little else in terms of offensive stats.

Analysis: Though he had been healthy for the past six weeks, this injury is a big concern because he's already missed time this season due to a sprain to the same ankle and has long battled leg problems.

Analysis: Noah has now grabbed 16 rebounds in three of the last five games and actually reached double figures in scoring in two of those contests. When he's not getting offensive rebounds, though, you can't expect too much scoring from him.
Jan. 2 7:45 PM PT8:45 PM MT9:45 PM CT10:45 PM ET3:45 GMT11:45 8:45 PM MST10:45 PM EST7:45 UAE (+1)04:4522:45 ET9:45 PM CTNaN:� - Noah finished with 10 rebounds, eight points and a pair of blocks in Monday's loss to Orlando.
Analysis: The veteran center has been getting the job done on the glass lately, averaging 12 rebounds over a five-game run in which he's notched a pair of double-doubles. Noah also has six blocks over his past four games, keeping him a solid contributor in categories that don't involve scoring.
