Knicks C Joakim Noah said he is walking without a limp and has started the rehabilitation process following last month's knee surgery, according to Al Iannazzone of Newsday.
Noah will begin strengthening work on Monday, Iannazzone said. The 32-year-old has not played since Feb. 4 and may miss the remainder of the season. He is expected to be re-evaluated this month.
He is upset with the way he's played this year and said it's frustrating to not be able to contribute at this point.
"It sucks. Frustrating to not be able to be out there," Noah said, according to Steve Popper of NJ.com. "It's been frustrating to not be able to right for this team this year. Just want to go out there and be able to play at a high level. It's a setback. I just got to bounce back."
Noah has averaged 5 points and 8.8 rebounds per game in 46 games this season.
