New York Knicks center Joakim Noah signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the team in the off-season. Since that time, he’s been a bust, as he did not live up to expectations so far.

Now, Noah is going to be out four-to-six months with rotator cuff surgery that he will have soon. This injury happened during his 20-game suspension for violating the NBA’s substance abuse policy.

The 32-year-old has been bothered by this shoulder for years. It’s also his latest surgery, as he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in January. Following the surgery, he took an illegal substance, which led to his suspension.

Noah’s 20-game suspension began with the final eight regular season games of the 2016-17 season. If he’s deemed healthy, he’ll miss the first 12 games of next season.

The Knicks owe the big man $54 million over the next three-years. He came to the Big Apple after spending his career with the Chicago Bulls.

He had hoped that signing with the Knicks, he would rekindle his partnership with Derrick Rose. However, like Noah’s first-year, Rose had an up-and-down season, before his season came to an end with knee surgery.

In just 46 games, he averaged five points and 8.8 rebounds per game.
