Nerlens Noel shot 6-11 from the field and 5-6 from the charity stripe for 17 points but did check in and out of the game several times with a right knee contusion.
Noel first checked out of the game with two minutes to go in the first half but did return after the break only to check out again with four minutes remaining in the game. There hasn’t been much concern from the Sixers post-game but we wouldn’t be surprised if something flared up over night. We’ll keep you posted. If Noel is forced to miss time, Richaun Holmes, who didn’t do much in relief tonight, would be the next man up as the Sixers may also be without Jahlil Okafor (right shin). The Sixers are known to treat their players with kid gloves so expect them to keep their key pieces healthy with absolutely nothing left to play for this season.
