Not so fast: Kris Dunn and Bobby Portis remain sidelined against the Thunder

Both participated in full-contact practices Wednesday and Thursday and in the shootaround Friday, leading to speculation they might be back in the lineup.

Boylen said Thursday that their minutes will be restricted when they return, which will slow his plans to experiment with and implement rotations.

The Grizzlies gave Joakim Noah a chance to resurrect his career Tuesday, signing the former Bulls center for the remainder of the season.

Noah, whom the Knicks released Oct. 13, told reporters in Memphis, Tenn., the Grizzlies deal was a “blessing.” Another person excited about it?

Noah signed a four-year, $72 million free-agent deal with the Knicks in July 2016, but injuries and a suspension limited him to 53 games in two seasons.

Asked why he didn’t bring Noah to the Thunder, Donovan said his roster is complete and “nothing was brought to our attention about the possibility.”
