    76ers' Nerlens Noel: Plays through ankle injury, scores 18 points

    Noel (ankle) finished Saturday's 103-98 win over the Nets with 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four steals, three blocks, and two assists across 32 minutes. Noel briefly exited the game with 5:58 remaining in the third quarter after twisting his right ankle, but he was taped up quickly in the locker room and returned with just over nine minutes left in the fourth quarter. It appears Noel's injury was only minor, and after he shot a sizzling 8-for-11 from the field Saturday, fantasy owners shouldn't have to fret too much about his health, especially with the All-Star break on the horizon.

    76ers' Nerlens Noel: Efficient shooting night in Wednesday's loss

    Noel had 20 points (9-11 FG, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, assists, a steal and a block in a loss to Detroit on Wednesday. Noel thrived just as he always does without Jahlil Okafor in the lineup. In this instance, Noel is free to work down low and grab as many rebounds as possible. Lately, the two have learned to play well together and that has helped the overall morale of Philly since they're actually winning games nowadays. Okafor should be back on Saturday for the contest against Golden State, but regardless, both he and Noel could be in for a very long night with that tough matchup.

    76ers' Nerlens Noel: Scores 14 points, grabs nine rebounds in Tuesday's win

    Noel scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-4 FT) while grabbing nine rebounds with three steals and three blocks over 30 minutes in Tuesday's 113-103 win against the Suns. With Jahlil Okafor sidelined with an illness it was Robert Covington, not Noel, who got the bump in offensive chances. Noel was still able to make the most of his touches and came close to his 11th double-double of the season. Had he avoided foul trouble, Noel would have been in line for an even healthier fantasy stat line.

    76ers' Nerlens Noel: Receives medication after game to address migraine

    Noel (head) indicated that he received migraine medication after he was removed from Wednesday's win over the Magic late in the first half due to a headache and blurred vision, CSN Philadelphia's Jessica Camerato reports. "I started getting dizzy. I didn't want to catch the ball. I didn't know if I'd be able to," Noel said, about his early departure. "I didn't want to go back out there and just hurt my team in any type of way, not being able to react." Noel noted that he's experienced migraines in the past, so it appears that both player and team were taking precaution by ruling him out after halftime. He finished the night with four points and eight rebounds over 19 minutes. The big man suggested that he was feeling better after leaving the game, so there's a strong possibility he'll be able to play in Saturday's contest against the Celtics.

    76ers' Nerlens Noel: Double-double in loss to Knicks

    Noel posted a double-double with 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-4 FT) and 13 rebounds in addition to one assist, two steals and three blocks over 47 minutes in Monday's double-overtime loss to the Knicks. The 21-year-old set a new season-high in minutes played Monday, and he responded with one of his best all-around performances of the campaign, which was also his first double-double since New Year's Day. Noel's playing time and effectiveness have fluctuated all season, as he had played 26 minutes or fewer in each of his two previous games, but he continues to rebound and pile up defensive stats at a high rate when he receives the requisite minutes.
