Nerlens Noel says his knee is 100 percent

It was reported that Nerlens Noel would sit out for the remainder of the season and make his NBA debut during the summer. 

Despite those reports, the 19-year old feels healthy enough to play before the season’s end.

“Obviously I do want to play,” Noel told reporters in Philadelphia. “I’m a 19-year-old who’s been sitting down on the sideline really wanting to get out there and show my abilities and to be able to play ball.

“It’s been tough, but it’s something we had to do.”

Noel’s been progressing well.

On Tuesday, Noel deemed his knee “100 percent,” saying he’s gained over 3 inches on his vertical leap since before the surgery and overall is “stronger and moving around well.” He’s also overhauled his shot with the help of 76ers coach Brett Brown.

There’s no point of risking anything with only a week left in the regular season.
