Nerlens Noel injury update: May not even play this season
Philadelphia coach Brett Brown reiterated Monday that he does not believe center Nerlens Noel will play this season following knee surgery, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
The 76ers want to take it easy on Noel and he will likely not have an established timetable to return for some time. Noel may not debut until the 2014-15 season at this point.

Sixers coach Brett Brown said it’s possible rookie center Nerlens Noel will miss the entire season.
“Everybody doubts that he’s going to play this year,” he said.
Brown said the 6-11, 228-pounder from Kentucky is learning what it takes to become an NBA player.
“It’s a classroom,” he said. “We don’t want to waste this year. I think from a skill perspective, it’s an opportunity for us to break down his shot, really work on his free throws and start a little bit from ground zero.”
