Nerlens Noel will get the start at center on Sunday against the Bulls.
With Joel Embiid (rest) ruled out and Jahlil Okafor (knee) a game-time decision, Noel was deemed the starting center on Sunday. In his two most recent starts on Tuesday against the Clippers and Wednesday against the Bucks, Noel dropped 19 points, eight boards, five assists, three blocks and two steals and then followed that up with a 16 point, 13 rebound, one block and one steal outing. He fills up the stat sheet and with another opportunity blossoming tonight look for Noel to capitalize even if Okafor manages to see the floor.
