Report: Nerlens Noel Out for Season
According to head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, Brett Brown, Nerlens Noel may be out for the entire season. Noel tore his ACL last year in February and slid all the way to the 6th pick in the draft. Had Noel not gotten injured he would have been the unanimous number one pick. However, Noel was taken 6th and then traded by the team that drafted him – New Orleans Pelicans – to the Philadelphia 76ers for All-Star point guard, Jrue Holiday.
Most ACL surgeries take about one year to totally heal, so you would think that the rookie would be back by All Star Break, but it looks like that may not be the case. Noel wanted to make everyone pay for passing on him in the draft, but it may have to wait one more year for this promising big man.
