New York Knicks center Joakim Noah had arthroscopic knee surgery Monday and will miss the remainder of the season.

Noah hasn’t played since a Feb. 4 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in which he had four points and two rebounds in six minutes.

Noah has had several injuries derail his season, including shoulder, hamstring and knee issues. The surgery is expected to be a “clean up” of the left knee, league sources told The Vertical.

Noah, 32, is in the first year of a four-year, $72 million free-agent contract he signed in July after playing nine seasons with the Chicago Bulls.

In 46 starts for the Knicks, he averaged five points and 8.7 rebounds. Noah has averaged nine points and 9.4 rebounds for his career.

Noah was drafted ninth overall in 2007 by the Bulls.
