Sixers’ Nerlens Noel Out Through December?
Known primarily as a defensive specialist at Kentucky, [Nerlen Noel is] determined to contribute on the offensive end. Noel said he was always hesitant to shoot and preferred to focus on the defensive end.
“I never wanted to hurt my team,” he said of missing shots. “Now, I’m definitely being able to go in the gym and work on my game and do a lot of repetition.
“I’m definitely going to have a strong offensive game.”
But no one knows when or if he’ll get to unveil it this season.
The Sixers are in no rush to get him on the court. Though Noel is ahead of schedule in his weight-room workouts, Wilk doubts he will be ready to play before December.
