Nerlens Noel continued his strong preseason with 12 points, nine rebounds, two assists and four blocks in just 21 minutes on Friday night.
That's five blocks and two steals in 43 minutes of preseason work. Noel is going to be a backup this year but doesn't need a lot of time to make a defensive impact, and it certainly feels like the Thunder are going to give him some run rather than bury him. Noel is starting to make a little noise for fantasy purposes. Starter Steven Adams won't be affected and put up 14 points, 13 boards and a block in just 25 minutes tonight.
