Kristaps Porzingis is walking again and Enes Kanter speaks about the Joakim Noah situation surrounding the New York Knicks.
New York Knicks superstar Kristaps Porzingis is walking again, albeit in a brace. This is a great sign for fans and the organization. KP is still months and months away from returning to the court, but this is still a “step” in the right direction.
Porzingis has been very open with fans during his rehab and he’s still making headlines. Whether it’s sending gifts to his All-Star teammates or posting on Instagram, KP still has a knack for being center stage. For the Knicks, it’s not the worst thing for the media and fans to focus on.

Enes Kanter told reporters, “I hope everything works out well for the Knicks and for Jo. Because both sides are good guys.” This is a tough scenario for Kanter and he handles it as well as possible. He is stuck between a teammate and the organization.
Unfortunately, until there’s a resolution to Joakim Noah’s situation, reporters will continue to ask these questions. Fortunately for the Knicks, this could be resolved sooner rather than later.
If the Knicks can reach a buyout agreement with Joakim Noah by March 1, he can sign with a team and become eligible for the playoffs. It’s unclear how the Knicks are preparing to move forward, but if they can’t reach an agreement with Noah, things could get ugly quickly.
The National Basketball Players Association has stated that they have Noah’s back should he and the organization not be able to reach a buyout agreement. This could cause more problems for the Knicks than they are willing to deal with considering there could be an investigation into the altercation that took place between Noah and Jeff Hornacek.
