by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) 76ers guard Michael Carter-Williams and forward Nerlens Noel are looking forward to playing in their first game together Thursday, CSNPhilly.com reports.

"It feels good ... to have Mike back," Noel said. "He can run a team at the point position. He gets a lot of guys involved, so I am looking forward to it."

"I think we have great communication without speaking," Carter-Williams said. "We have great eye contact. I know where he is going to be on the floor, and he knows where I am. I think that is hard to teach. We talk on defense but on offense we really try to use eye contact. I try to get him the ball on time and get him the ball in his spots."

Coach Brett Brown didn't say after Wednesday's practice whether or not Carter-Williams would start in his season debut. He has been slowed while recovering from May shoulder surgery.

Nerlens Noel encourages 76ers with Wednesday effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Rookie center Nerlens Noel bounced back from a poor performance Monday to excel Wednesday night for the 76ers against Charlotte. He recorded game-highs of nine rebounds and three blocks while scoring 10 points and adding three assists.

"I felt more comfortable tonight," Noel told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I'm still not where I want to be. I have to continue working and get a feel for the offense more, actually playing against other NBA players."

Brett Brown agreed with that assessment.

"I think the game slowed down for him tonight - that let him play well. "You could see signs of how I could use him better, and how he could slowly inch along and continue to progress."

Noel is coming off a torn ACL that had his readiness for this season in doubt.


Nerlens Noel ready to be a game changer on defense


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) The 76ers are not going to have a lot of options this season. Their roster is made up mostly of castoffs, D-League players and guys working on unguaranteed contracts. One exception is Nerlens Noel, the organizations' crown jewel, who missed all of his rookie season while recovering from a knee injury.

Coach Brett Brown told reporters last weekend that the team is not expected to give Noel any minute or game restrictions as he gets set to make his NBA debut. Of course, that might happen naturally, as young big men tend to be foul-prone in general -- Noel averaged 3.4 fouls per game in just 25.8 minutes per game in five Summer League contests.

So, Noel probably won't average 30 minutes per night as a rookie, even if the team doesn't put a hard limit on his playing time. That might not matter all that much, as he will get the chance to put up big numbers anyways. Noel might not be much of a scorer out of the gate, but he seems likely to rack up big steal, block and rebound numbers on a team that maintained by far the fastest pace in the league a year ago.

Earlier in the offseason, I ranked Noel 33rd in my keeper league rankings, and he would be even higher if not for his injury concerns. Noel should be a game changer on defense, and is worth targeting in all formats as a No. 2 center. 


Nerlens Noel not expected to have any restrictions this season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2014) The 76ers are not expected to have any restrictions for center Nerlens Noel, who is entering his rookie season, head coach Brett Brown told the Philadelphia Inquirer Saturday. Noel missed the 2013-14 season after tearing his ACL in his freshman year at Kentucky.

"We're going into it very open," Brown said, "and then just being smart with him as the season unfolds in regards to playing time."


Nerlens Noel gets through first summer-league game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) 76ers center Nerlens Noel shined in his Orlando Summer League debut Saturday, his first game action since tearing his ACL as a freshman in college.

Noel played 26 minutes in the exhibition game against the Magic, and looked dominant at times against rookies and other fringe NBA players. He scored 19 points on 6 of 11 shooting, with two rebounds, three assists and four steals. Noel also went 7 for 7 from the free-throw line, a promising sign after he shot just 52.9 percent from the free-throw line at Kentucky. 


Nerlens Noel has been '100 percent for months'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"I've been 100 percent for months now," Noel said. "I feel great and continue to get stronger in all parts of my body, just continuing my growth really. I will be playing in summer games and summer league."

Sixers coach sets "realistic" goal for Nerlens Noel


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) 76ers coach Brett Brown told the Delaware County Daily Times Tuesday he has "purposefully ignored" Nerlens Noel's recent tweet indicating that he has a target date set for his return from a torn ACL, and suggested some other more realistic games for Noel's future. He said he thinks Noel can participate in 5-on-5 full-court work by the end of the season, but did not indicate that he expects Noel to play this season.

Noel has progressed to 4-on-4 halfcourt work and one-on-one drills as part of his recovery, but there remains no timetable for him to possible return. 


Nerlens Noel targeting April 4 debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Noel has been out since February 2013 after tearing his ACL with the University of Kentucky. He has yet to participate in 5-on-5 activities at practice but has been gradually increasing his activity on the court.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
