The number 6 pick in this year’s NBA draft, 76ers’ Nerlens Noel, may not see any playing time this season as he continues to recover from a torn ACL he suffered in February.
Sixers head coach Brett Brown told reporters that Noel’s rehab has been slow.
Sixers coach Brett Brown strongly suggests Nerlens Noel won’t play this yr. Says no decision final, but progress is slow & looking that way
