New York Knicks center Eddy Curry must appear in court next week for a hearing on whether he should be given custody of his 3-year-old son Noah, who was found unharmed in a room where his mother and sister were murdered. Nova Henry and her 10-month-old daughter Ava were fatally shot in January. Nova Henry's former attorney and ex-boyfriend, Fredrick Goings, has been charged in the murders and is being held without bond.

Noah has lived with his maternal grandmother since the murders. At a hearing Thursday, a judge said he wants Curry and the boy to be present in court next week before any custody ruling.

Curry is a former Chicago Bulls player and Thornwood High School standout.
