Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie
has released a statement through the team, regarding the status of injured rookie center Nerlens Noel
“Since his arrival in Philadelphia, Nerlens'
capacity for work both in his rehab and in our weight room has been
incredible. Our sports performance and training staff have been
extremely complimentary of his efforts thus far during this
methodical rehab process.
"After careful consideration and numerous
discussions with our medical and performance teams, the consulting
physician and rehabilitation staff, and Nerlens' representatives, some
of the restrictions on Nerlens have been lifted and he
is now able to participate in limited on-court work.
"There are several benchmarks Nerlens still must
meet, and during that time we will closely monitor his progress and
regularly evaluate his status. Our goal remains the same, which is to
give Nerlens every opportunity to ensure a long,
productive NBA career."
