Injury Rehab

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Former Kentucky center Nerlens Noel's injured knee is progressing well and he's looking forward to playing again "as soon as possible."

 

The 6-foot-10 Noel is recovering from a torn left anterior cruciate ligament, though that didn't prevent the Philadelphia 76ers from acquiring the sixth overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans in last month's NBA draft.
