The 76ers are reportedly exploring a trade of Nerlens Noel or Jahlil Okafor, according to ESPN's Chad Ford and Marc Stein.
This isn't a surprise. The 76ers are fully expecting Joel Embiid (foot) to be ready for opening night, so they have three bigs currently incapable of spacing the floor. Perhaps Noel is the worst of the bunch on offense and he would be due for an extension first. It's going to be very odd to see how the 76ers approach this summer in the post-process era.

Nerlens Noel had 14 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.

Robert Covington went off for 24 points and six 3-pointers, Ish Smith added 18 points, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 8-of-11 shooting, and Nik Stauskas stepped up with 13 points and a 3-pointer in 37 minutes. Jerami Grant started, but played just 15 minutes due to foul trouble and finished with six points. The Sixers finish up at Chicago on Wednesday, so hopefully they'll continue to let the kids play in a meaningless game.
Apr 12 - 10:26 PM

The Sixers lost their final home game in overtime, despite Nerlens Noel racking up 18 points, 13 rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block in 42 minutes of action.

Noel made 9-of-12 field goals and didn't get to the free throw line, to the relief of many owners. This marks the second-most minutes Noel has played in a game all season, so owners can comfortably keep him locked into active lineups for Philly's upcoming two-game week.
Apr 10 - 8:03 PM

Nerlens Noel scored 17 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and no turnovers in 33 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

He was Sam Hinkie's first significant move when he was traded for Jrue Holiday on draft night in 2013. Noel looks healthy and should be out there the rest of the way, assuming he stays healthy.
Apr 8 - 11:08 PM

Nerlens Noel will start on Friday against the Knicks.

He played 18 minutes in his return, so he should get minutes in the mid 20s tonight. Elton Brand will likely back him up for this game. Noel should be owned in all leagues with the 76ers no longer having to worry about tanking.
Apr 8 - 5:32 PM

Nerlens Noel is being sued for allegedly damaging a rental home last year, according to TMZ.

He rented a 4,800 square foot home outside of Philly in September 2014 for the price of $54,000 over a one-year lease. The list of the reported damage is something, per the TMZ report: $30,000 in damage to carpets, extreme water damage throughout the home, $4,000 in damage to the stove, a broken elevator and more. A day after the lawsuit was sent, a tombstone with "RIP" written on it was on the front steps of the property. Per the report, the owners of the home believe it was Noel's doing and are considering it a death threat.

Nerlens Noel (knee) said that he "felt good," in his return from a six-game absence on Tuesday, and added that he believes his minutes limit will be dropped for Friday's game against the Knicks.

"It felt good," Noel said. "I just got a little wind under me and a little feel back. I will be alright the next game without restrictions." It sounds like Noel could be back in the starting five in his next time out, which would result in Elton Brand returning to the bench and Carl Landry's minutes could take a slight hit.
Apr 6 - 11:21 AM

Nerlens Noel returned from a knee injury and played 18 minutes on Tuesday, finishing with four points, six rebounds and a block.

He was on a minutes count tonight and wasn't a great option, but at least got out there and played some. He'll likely remain on a day-to-day status the rest of the way, so watch for updates on him going forward.
Apr 5 - 9:32 PM

Nerlens Noel (knee) will come off the bench for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

Noel will be returning from a six-game absence, and he'll be limited to around 20 minutes, so while owners in season-long settings shouldn't hesitate to get him active, he's not a very alluring DFS target with the minutes cap and bench role. Carl Landry and Elton Brand will lose some minutes tonight with Noel back in the rotation
Apr 5 - 5:29 PM

Nerlens Noel (knee) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, according to head coach Brett Brown.

Noel is optimistic about his chances to suit up against the Pelicans, but Brown guessed that Noel will miss Tuesday's game against New Orleans. While Noel could potentially play on Tuesday night, we're likely looking at another game of increased usage from Carl Landry and Jerami Grant.
Apr 5 - 10:42 AM

Coach Brett Brown said Nerlens Noel (knee) is somewhere between questionable and doubtful against the Pelicans on Tuesday.

Noel was a little more optimistic. "If things continue to feel good, I'll be playing," Noel said. "The guys have played so hard since I've been out. Hopefully, I can come in and be a difference-maker." The 76ers have locked up the top spot for the lottery, so they don't need to tank anymore. Noel is likely looking at a game-time decision.
Apr 4 - 8:19 PM

Nerlens Noel (knee) is questionable to play on Tuesday vs. New Orleans.

While Brett Brown did not sound optimistic regarding Noel's status, the big man said "if things continue to feel good, I'll be out there [on Tuesday]." If he does sit, it will be the big man's seventh straight absence, and with a chance he could miss the rest of the season, fantasy owners should do what they need to do in order to survive. Assuming Noel is out, Jerami Grant, Carl Landry and Elton Brand will all play more. It is worth noting that Noel is doing everything he can to return before the year ends, but that call won't be solely his to make.
Apr 4 - 12:18 PM

Nerlens Noel (knee) will not play against the Pacers on Saturday.

It'll be his sixth straight game out of the lineup and he could miss the rest of the season. Carl Landry figures to get the majority of the work at center while Elton Brand is coming off a double-double. Although, it'll be tough to trust Brand on the back-to-back.
Apr 2 - 5:52 PM

Nerlens Noel (knee) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Pacers.

The 76ers have successfully tanked and have the No. 1 spot in the lottery, but Noel doesn't appear to be healthy. With Noel out, there should be more minutes for Carl Landry, Elton Brand and Jerami Grant. Noel is tough to stash in daily season-long leagues.
Apr 2 - 4:19 PM

Nerlens Noel (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Hornets.

This is just a reminder for his owners, as he was ruled out for this contest a few days ago. Noel is still hopeful to play again this season, but the tanking 76ers will be cautious. Carl Landry, Jerami Grant (knee, quad) and Elton Brand will soak up the center minutes on Friday.
