Noah — who has been a bust in his first-year in the Big Apple — has not played in a game since February 4. He had knee surgery at the end of Feb.
“Joakim was completely forthcoming and cooperative throughout the investigation and we believe that this isolated occurrence was a regrettable mistake,” the union statement said. “Joakim has offered his deepest apologies for this infraction, and neither he nor the NBPA will pursue an appeal.”
Knicks President of Basketball Operations Phil Jackson took a big gamble on Noah last summer. He signed a four-year, $72 million deal.
The National Basketball Players’ Association investigation “hadn’t knowingly or willingly” violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement policy. This drug that he took is apart of the old CBA and will not be apart of the new CBA that starts July 1.
Noah will miss 10 games to end the 2016-17 season. He’ll then miss 10 games to begin the 2017-18 season.
With the 10 game suspension this season, he’s losing $1.54 million. He’ll lose $1.22 million to begin next season because of the suspension.
