Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel scored a career-high 19 points during Monday's loss to the Celtics.
Insight: Noel was 9-of-12 from the floor and had eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks, and three turnovers. Owners should continue to expect some inconsistency.
 
12/13/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel will come off the bench on Saturday with Henry Sims starting.
Insight: Noel has struggled a lot lately. He has scored more than 10 points just once in the last five games, so fantasy owners might want to think about benching him too.
 
12/3/2014 12:36:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel (hip) will play on Wednesday.
Insight: After missing Monday's game, Noel is ready to roll on Wednesday. He has been steadily improving, and should continue to do so.
 
12/1/2014 6:44:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel (hip) will not play Monday against the Spurs.
Insight: He was probable, but will be unable to suit up. Henry Sims and Brandon Davies will see more minutes.
 
11/22/2014 10:18:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel played very well in Saturday's loss to the Knicks.
Insight: He was 6-of-11 from the field, but only 5-of-10 from the line for 17 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, and two turnovers. Free throws will continue to be an issue for Noel, but hopefully he will continue to produce lines like this one.
 
11/7/2014 12:22:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel left Wednesday's game against the Magic due to an ankle injury and will not play Friday.
Insight: Noel suffered an ankle sprain and the Sixers have no reason to push him before he is ready. Henry Sims will likely return to the starting lineup.

Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel left Wednesday's game against the Magic.
Insight: Noel suffered an ankle sprain and will not return. We will keep you posted with updates.
 
11/3/2014 9:34:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel somehow grabbed only rebound on Monday.
Insight: He played well other than that, totaling 10 points, five assists, six steals, one block, and three turnovers. Owners should expect Noel's rebounding numbers to improve quickly.
 
11/1/2014 9:02:00 AM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel had a double-double in Friday's loss to the Bucks.
Insight: He had 14 points and 10 rebounds, along with three blocks and a steal. Noel also shot 7-of-11 from the field. Owners should be extremely pleased with that performance.
 
10/29/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel posted 10 rebounds and three blocks in his NBA debut.
Insight: He had a poor shooting night, going 2-for-11 from the field and 2-for-6 from the line, for his six points. Owners will have to deal with poor offensive nights from Noel, but it is nice to see him produce in the rebounding and shot-blocking department, early on.
 
10/24/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel is 100 percent over his torn ACL and will get all the minutes he can handle this season.
Insight: The 76ers will be awful this season, but Noel will accumulate blocks, steals and rebounds right away. His long-term potential also has him as a 20-point scorer, but right out of the gate, we expect him to sit more around the 10 PPG mark.
 
10/24/2014 10:13:00 AM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel still lacks an offensive game, but fantasy owners should take note of his game Wednesday.
Insight: Noel shot just 3-of-10, but pulled down eight rebounds, blocked five shots and added five steals. That's the kind of line fantasy owners like to see.
 
10/10/2014 8:47:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel did not play on Friday due to a right thigh issue.
Insight: The 76ers held Noel out on Friday for precautionary reasons. Noel is listed as day-to-day. He should be one of the first rookies selected in fantasy drafts. With his shot-block ability, Noel has No. 1 center potential.
 
10/8/2014 11:01:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel made 5-of-13 shots, scoring 10 points, and also had nine rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 31 minutes of Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets.
Insight: Noel likely benefitted from the matchup against Al Jefferson on Wednesday. Jefferson is know for playing very little defense. The numbers from Wednesday are much better than Noel's numbers from the first preseason game. With the lack of scoring elsewhere on the 76ers and lack of depth at the center position, Noel is a possible No. 1 center in fantasy.
 
7/5/2014 3:42:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia center Nerlens Noel gave Sixers fans and fantasy owners a first glimpse of his ability in Saturday's summer league contest.
Insight: The 20-year-old, who sat out the entire season after ACL surgery, played 26 minutes and posted 19 points, two rebounds, three assists, four steals and a block. Most important he looked healthy. He could see plenty of court time in 2014 and could end up being a mid-round fantasy value.

Description: Sixers center Nerlens Noel says he's 100 percent healthy, though he doesn't expect to play in any of Philadelphia's final five regular season games. SOURCE: Courier Times
Insight: The almost 20-year-old (his birthday's tomorrow) is now 14 months removed from ACL surgery. He should be the Sixers' starting center in 2014-15.
 
3/27/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia center Nerlens Noel (torn ACL) was part of a 4-on-4 scrimmage and impressed, according to a Delco Times report.
Insight: Noel still won't play this season, but if he's as good as expected and the Sixers draft well they could make a quick turnaround from their current disastrous season.

Description: Philadelphia center Nerlens Noel (torn ACL) is not expected to play this season. SOURCE: Marc Narducci, Philly Inquirer
Insight: He was hoping to return on April 4th so he could debut against his hometown Celtics but that was always a bit of a longshot. Noel is definitely a part of the team's plans, just not this season.
 
3/11/2014 5:34:00 PM
Description: Sixers coach Brett Brown thinks practicing 5-on-5 by the end of the season is a realistic goal for Nerlens Noel (knee), according to beat writer Chris Vito.
Insight: Noel hasn't played since tearing his ACL at the University of Kentucky over a year ago, but a tweet he sent out Sunday indicated that he was targeting April 4 for a return. However, Brown's comments Tuesday suggest that the center won't be back this season.
 
3/9/2014 9:30:00 PM
Description: Nerlens Noel hinted on his Twitter account that his Sixers debut could come April 4th against Boston.
Insight: Noel hasn't played since tearing his ACL at the University of Kentucky over a year ago. He's not a big time scorer but when healthy, Noel can be a dominant shot blocker. When Noel comes back, he'll likely be on a minutes limit.
