Nerlens Noel scored nine points on 4-of-7 shooting with only two rebounds to go with one block in 19 minutes on Friday against the Nuggets.
This result is disappointing but we know rebounding won’t be a problem for him when healthy, nor will the defensive stats. The question is whether or not he can get 20 or more minutes per game in Philly or elsewhere and we believe that he can. Once he’s in basketball shape the numbers will come. Tonight’s result does not deter us from his position as a must-stash asset.
