Joakim Noah logged just 12 minutes of playing time on Saturday night against the Hornets. He recorded three rebounds and zero points.
Since returning from an illness earlier in the week, Noah has played a combined 30 minutes in back-to-back nights. Noah was benched for the fourth quarter and overtime yesterday, and tonight he was again used sparingly. On the season, the Knicks’ expensive offseason acquisition is averaging less than five points a game. While Noah does deliver above average assist totals from the center position, he won’t be of any use to fantasy owners if the minutes per game continue to decline.
