Mavs coach Rick Carlisle says that Nerlens Noel will likely not make a return until after the first week of February as he previously thought was possible.
Noel continues to recover from thumb surgery and will remain sidelined for what sounds like multiple weeks. It’s a lost season for Noel and it’s understandable if owners cut bait knowing he is facing a prolonged absence. Dynasty leaguers may want to hang onto him as he’s been a top-100 player in the past and could be again in the future.
