Nogueira missed some time earlier this season with what was reported as a hamstring injury but has apparently battled knee issues all season. One report suggests that the knee issues are a result of a "very busy summer" that included draft workouts and the summer league schedule. Nogueira has continued to try and reshape his body in an effort to be ready to play in the NBA as soon as next season.
