Nerlens Noel could miss NBA rookie season

PHILADELPHIA (WKYT) - Nerlens Noel could miss his entire rookie season in Philadelphia, according to 76ers Head Coach Bert Brown.

Noel was thought to be ahead of schedule in his recovery from a knee injury that he suffered while playing at Kentucky.

However, on Monday night, Brown said he doubts Noel plays this year.

"We don't want to waste this year," Brown said. "I think from a skill perspective, it's an opportunity for us to break down his shot, really work on his free throws, and start a little bit from ground zero."
