New York Knicks center Joakim Noah may not be able to hit the court again until October. According to a report from The Vertical Tuesday, Noah will need surgery on his torn rotator cuff and could need 4 to 6 months of rehab.

The last part of the 2016-17 season has not gone well for Noah. The Vertical reported that Noah was slated to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery before finding out the news about his shoulder. He was also suspended 20 games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

The Knicks must really feel something awful for signing the 32-year-old big man, with previous foot issues, to a four-year $72 million contract in the offseason.
