Nerlens Noel discussed his timetable for return from a right knee contusion on Tuesday.
“I definitely want to get back on the court, definitely before the season ends and be able to give it another run,” Noel said. “But obviously being smart, coming back healthy and making sure I’m in a good place when I come back.” The Sixers aren’t going to push him back fast at all and we’re thinking there is a better chance he is shut down rather than brought back for some meaningless games — unless he is 100 percent okay and it sounds like this weekend he’ll be evaluated. “I’m making progress,” Noel said. “I’ve been getting treatment around the clock. I’m starting to feel a little better. I’m looking forward to this weekend so I can see what I’m able to do.”
