Nerlens Noel (thumb) will be available to play on Wednesday against the Thunder.
With the Mavs in tank mode, there is no reason why the they shouldn’t play Noel at least 15-20 minutes per game to see what they have before the big man hits free agency this summer. However, he was already in the doghouse before he got hurt playing just four minutes per game over his last six. Plus the Mavs may want to keep developing Dwight Powell who has been playing some center recently and is producing top-100 value over the last 25 games. 12-team leagues and below can probably take a wait and see approach with Noel while deeper leagues can take a flier on him.
