No timeline for Noel
By Nick Borges
The Philadelphia 76ers finally introduced Nerlens Noel to the local media on TUesday and one of the hot topics was the rookies timeline to play. Both Noel and general manager Sam Hinkie would not talk about a specific time period.
“Nerlens is motivated and hungry to return, but his long-term health is of most importance," Hinkie told Philly.com.
Should Noel not suffer any setbacks. he might return in late December to mid January. Noel will continue his rehab in Birmingham, Ala.
"I'm doing six hours of rehab a day. I'm making a lot of progress," said Noel.
Weight, or a lack thereof is an issue for Noel and as of Tuesday he said he's 219 pounds.
