Knicks forward Michael Beasley commented on teammate Joakim Noah’s improved physical condition as the team prepares to enter training camp.
Beasley was quoted saying that Noah “is cut up,” and has “got 25 abs right now.” These fall into the category of preseason comments that can be disregarded, but any mention of Noah’s physical appearance do take on a certain relevance given his 12 game supension after testing positive for PEDs. Noah has stated that he felt pressured to use PEDs in response to nagging injuries and declining play. Despite the suspension, Noah still will struggle to put up more than deep league fantasy value this year with Willy Hernangomez in the picture.
