Nerlens Noel (knee) will need to earn his minutes and he will be out for another few weeks according to Brett Brown.
Noel is as high of an upside guy as you’re going to find on the wire and he doesn’t need tremendous minutes to have low-end fantasy value, either. The knee issue is a bit more serious than the reporting suggested earlier in the year, but the Sixers’ track record of obscuring their injury news makes it hard to take a stance on that one way or another. This news does suggest a longer track toward fantasy production and the bottom line here is that he is a mid-to-high level stash so plan accordingly. Top-50 value is not out of the question if he returns with his game intact.
