Nerlens Noel News

Nerlens Noel    F/C  Mavericks

 

 

Dallas Head coach Rick Carlisle is looking forward to getting Nerlens Noel (thumb surgery) back after the All-Star break. "I do think he's going to be back after the break and I'm looking forward to getting him out there," Carlisle said. "It's an opportunity for us as we move along here to look at potential young groups that could be playing together into the future to see the viability, the chemistry, those kinds of things." When asked what he wants to see from Noel, Carlisle said he wants "passion, hard play, rebounding and some chemistry with his teammates." There's no guarantee that Noel will be out of the doghouse when he's cleared, so he's just a luxury stash in deeper leagues for now.

The Mavericks have no current plans to buy out big man Nerlens Noel, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times. Stein adds that the Mavs are hopeful to get him back after the break and he can make another run at finding a role. Of course, the biggest story about Noel this season was about him eating a hotdog at halftime, so it's far from certain he gets minutes this season.

Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said Sunday that Noel (thumb) has progressed to five-on-zero and non-contact drills, Earl K. Sneed of the Mavericks' official site reports. Carlisle is hopeful that Noel will be available shortly after the All-Star break. After re-signing with the Mavericks on a one-year deal in August, Noel has done little to bolster his value on the open market in his first full season in Dallas. Noel has occupied only a fringe spot in the rotation for the Mavericks, averaging 4.0 points and 4.1 rebounds in 12.5 minutes per game over 18 appearances before requiring thumb surgery in early December. While it appears he's on the mend and trending toward a return within a few weeks, Noel could find himself behind Dwight Powell, Salah Mejri and Dirk Nowitzki in the pecking order at center once he's healthy again.

Nerlens Noel (left thumb surgery) has progressed to 5-on-0 and non-contact drills, and he could be cleared to play after the All-Star break. Interestingly, coach Rick Carlisle said he's "dying to get [Noel] back ... definitely looking forward to having him available." Noel fell out of the rotation when healthy but he could get renewed playing time after the break, because the Mavs reportedly want to see how he and Dennis Smith Jr. look together. If you're stashing him, though, it's likely in the hopes of a trade.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Noel (thumb) will likely return after the first week of February, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. Noel was originally hoping to return near the start of February, but it appears the big man is progressing slower than expected in his rehab. Carlisle didn't specify how much longer he thought Noel would be sidelined, though it sounds like he won't be cleared to return until after the trade deadline, which is Feb. 8. The 23-year-old fell out of favor prior to suffering the injury, so he may be limited to a minor role even when he's healthy.

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said the earliest we'll see Nerlens Noel (finger) is in February. He had his cast removed in early January, but his timetable hasn't really changed. Carlisle said back on Jan. 4 that Noel could be playing by early February, so maybe they showcase him before the Feb. 8 trade deadline. He was out of the rotation before the injury, so a fresh start could really help him.
