As expected, Nerlens Noel will return to the lineup tonight while Wesley Matthews is shaping up as a game-time decision.
Noel said he’d be back and he’s delivered. He might not get a full slate of minutes right away, but he’s worth deploying for his defensive contributions whenever he’s active. Matthews was limping pretty good when he left Monday’s tilt, and if he can’t go tonight look for Dorian Finney-Smith to pick up some extra minutes. It could also open the door for J.J. Barea to squeeze in some time alongside Seth Curry and/or Yogi Ferrell.
