Publish date:

The New York Knicks have recalled veteran center Joakim Noah from their G-league affiliate.

Noah, a former Defensive Player of the Year winner in the NBA, finished with nine points, five rebounds, four assists and one block in his lone appearance with the Westchester Knicks.

Noah has returned from his suspension for violating the league's anti-drug program. He made his season debut this past Monday and scored two points in roughly three minutes of action.

The 32-year-old Noah signed a lucrative four-year, $72 million free agent deal with the Knicks in the summer of 2016. He's making $17.8 million this season.
