Sixers’ center Nerlens Noel will require knee surgery the team announced on Friday.
He currently has no timetable for his return but the procedure is considered minor so he may not miss much time.
Noel missed his entire rookie season after recovering from left knee surgery. He played in 67 games last season and posted averages of 11.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
More news regarding the timetable for Noel’s return to the court should be released over the next week or so.
