Joakim Noah is likely out for the remainder of the year and this is the best news the New York Knicks could’ve gotten considering where they are at.

You never want to see a player go down with an injury, but Joakim Noah’s absence provides more opportunities for other, less experienced players. It also gives experience in all different situations to those who have potential, unlike Noah.

We all know of just how disappointing Joakim Noah has been, but other players now get to step in and fill the void. His injury means that Kristaps Porzingis will be the five man from here on out.

Willy Hernangomez will play no less than 20 minutes per night and Marshall Plumlee may even see some burn. In a season that is now lost, this is a blessing, possibly in a disguise.

Join us in this space of the internet as we travel through and break down those Knickerbockers who’ll benefit from Noah’s unfortunate injury woes.
