Knicks' Noah has shoulder surgery to repair rotator cuff

NEW YORK (AP) Knicks center Joakim Noah has had right shoulder surgery to repair his rotator cuff, a procedure that could sideline him until training camp.

The Knicks say Noah had the surgery Wednesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, performed by Dr. David Altchek.

The team didn't give a timetable for Noah's recovery, but coach Jeff Hornacek said late in the season that if Noah had the operation, the recovery time could be five months.
