Knicks center Joakim Noah left the team on Thursday for “personal reasons” and is expected to miss the club’s next two games.

Noah has been largely out of the Knicks’ rotation this season, appearing in seven of the club’s 48 games (he missed the first 12 games while serving the remainder of a 20-game suspension for using a banned substance).

Jeff Hornacek said of Noah’s absence, “it’s for these two games and we’ll see” according to published reports. The Knicks play the Denver Nuggets on Thursday and finish their road trip on Friday against the Phoenix Suns.

Hornacek declined to comment on the reason or reasons behind Noah’s absence.

Missouri sophomore Jontay Porter will miss the entire upcoming season after tearing his ACL and MCL on Sunday, the school announced.

Porter suffered the injuries during a closed scrimmage against Southern Illinois.

He is the younger brother of Michael Porter Jr., the former top recruit who missed the majority of his lone season at Missouri last year before being drafted in the first round of the NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets in June.

Jontay Porter, a 6-foot-11 power forward, averaged 9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks last season and was expected to see a jump in production in 2018-19. He was named preseason second-team all-SEC last week.
