Will Nerlens Noel Play in This Season?
Sixers rookie Nerlens Noel said today during an interview on Sirus/XM radio that it's possible he could debut this season. Noel tore his ACL in February and underwent surgery in March.
Back in October, Sixers coach Brett Brown said he and others in the organization doubted that Noel will play this season after ACL surgery during the off-season. Back on September 18th, Noel said that he's "really starting to feel like [his] old self," but that there was no timetable for his return.
Many including Noel though he could be ready to play by Christmas time at the earliest, which is next week - that timetable doesn't seem to be a realistic.
