Nerlens Noel scored a career-high 19 points against the Celtics on Monday with eight boards, four assists, three steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 29 minutes.

He made 9-of-12 from the field, his four dimes were also a career high, and it was just the second game of his career with 100 percent made from the line -- one attempted, but still a positive considering he's made only 47.9 percent this season. He looked extremely comfortable tonight and hopefully he can string a couple games together.
Dec 15 - 10:14 PM

Nerlens Noel looked awful on offense again on Saturday against the Grizzlies with four points, five rebounds, one assist, four steals and two blocks in 31 minutes.

He is dealing with a callus on his foot and his agility is just not there. Noel was able to put up some decent defensive stats, but he's now made a combined 1-of-12 from the field in his last two games. He's going to need to get extremely hot for his fantasy owners to be happy with his draft-day price tag.
Dec 13 - 11:02 PM

Nerlens Noel is coming off the bench against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

Henry Sims is going to start because coach Brett Brown doesn't want them on the court at the same time. Noel has been a nightmare lately, so his fantasy owners might want to bench him.
Dec 13 - 6:56 PM

Nerlens Noel missed all eight shots from the field with six rebounds, one steal, one block and five turnovers in 21 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

Yeesh. Noel is having some major issues scoring the ball at the NBA level and he's going to take some time to come around. He also had a callus on his foot tonight, but was able to return. We can probably rule him out as a Rookie of the Year candidate and he's not really worth starting in standards right now.
Dec 13 - 1:07 AM

The 76ers are thinking about bringing either Nerlens Noel or Henry Sims off the bench.

It's unclear which big will come off the bench if this plan comes to fruition, but it should make much of a difference minutes-wise as Noel and Sims are the only two Sixers bigs left after the Brandon Davies trade. Noel has been inconsistent this season, but he has enough upside to warrant a spot on standard fantasy league rosters.
Dec 11 - 1:14 PM

Nerlens Noel played 37 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday during a 108-101 win with nine points, eight boards, two assists, one steal and one block.

He actually did a decent job on Andre Drummond at times tonight and wasn't out of position on either side of the floor. Noel played 34 minutes on Friday night, so all of these minutes in a back-to-back set bode well for his health. He is still struggling on the offensive side, but it's mostly good news for Noel right now.
Dec 6 - 10:54 PM

Nerlens Noel started after missing time with a hip injury but had just eight points, three rebounds, two steals and a block in 25 minutes.

He's off to a really slow start this season, but if he ever gets healthy, he might be able to get into a groove. He's still worth holding in most situations, but is not someone you want to be starting if you have other options. At least for now.
Dec 4 - 1:01 AM

Nerlens Noel is in the starting lineup against the Wolves on Wednesday.

he was expected to play all day and the Sixers will start him now. His minutes might be in check, so he's not a complete must-play on a 10-game night. Brandon Davies goes back to the bench.
Dec 3 - 6:54 PM

Nerlens Noel (hip) will play in Wednesday's game against Minnesota.

This is excellent news after he was forced to sit against the Spurs on Monday, and owners can deploy him as usual. Brandon Davies will likely slide back to the bench and should not be owned in standard leagues. We will let you know how Noel's hip holds up after the game.
Dec 3 - 12:05 PM

Nerlens Noel (hip) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Minnesota.

He practiced Tuesday, but given how cautious the 76ers are with Noel, it would not be surprising to see him sit this one out despite the team being in win-now mode. All joking aside, owners will want to check back before tip-off for an official update on his status. If Noel can't go, Brandon Davies will likely start but Henry Sims will be the biggest beneficiary.
Dec 3 - 10:07 AM

Nerlens Noel (hip) is questionable to play in Wednesday's game vs. Minnesota.

If Noel is unable to go, Henry Sims, Brandon Davies, and Luc Mbah a Moute will split his minutes. Sims would make for the best plug-and-play option out of the group.

Nerlens Noel (hip) will not play against the Spurs on Monday night.

He was probable and the team just announced it 23 minutes before tip. It would appear that Noel had some discomfort in pre-game warmups. His owners in weekly leagues might want to bench him. Expect more Henry Sims while Brandon Davis and Luc Mbah a Moute will get more action.
Dec 1 - 6:37 PM

Nerlens Noel (right hip pointer) is probable vs. the Spurs on Monday.

Noel took an elbow to the hip at Sunday's practice, but it's not a serious concern and we'd be shocked if he's a late scratch for any reason in this one.
Dec 1 - 1:49 PM

Nerlens Noel took an elbow to the hip during Sunday's practice, but should be fine for Monday's game vs. the Spurs.

He was seen in serious discomfort, and was walking gingerly, but it appears this will be a non-issue moving forward. However, the Sixers have been known to be extremely cautious with their star players, so owners should still check back for an official update on his status as we draw closer to Monday's tip. Stay tuned.
