Nerlens Noel To Miss Several Weeks

DECEMBER 8, 1:29pm: Noel has officially undergone surgery on his left thumb, the Mavericks announced today in a press release. The team didn’t provide a recovery timetable for the center.

DECEMBER 6, 5:50pm: Nerlens Noel will undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb, Mavericks team writer Bobby Karalla relays (Twitter link).“He’ll be out for several weeks,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “I don’t know how long.”

Noel hurt his thumb earlier in the season and he hasn’t played since November 23. The center told the media that he expects to be out four to six weeks after undergoing surgery, as Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com passes along via Twitter.

Noel, who ‘s making slightly under $4.2MM this season, missed a total of six games so far this season and has only played 12.5 per contest on the nights he has suited up. He’ll be one of several players to become trade-eligible on December 15 and while there was a decent chance that he would have been switching teams prior to the injury, the latest news puts a hold on any movement.

      How would that do him any good? If he was healthy he would’ve been traded for beans ina few weeks. He’s terrible at this point in his career and his work ethic is terrible. Worst part is he thinks he’s a max contract player

    So his playing time is going to go from zero minutes a game to zero minutes a game.

    The guy is a joke. Can’t believe he turned down a 4-year, $70M contract.

    The Mavs won’t get anything for Noel because everyone knows he’s a rental. That $70 million is a thing of the past. He’ll be lucky to get an $8 million a year contract now! I remember when he was in Philadelphia and got sued by his landlord for trashing his place.

      With the abundance of bigs on the market this year, Noel’s reputation for being lazy, and the diminishing value placed on centers, I don’t even see him getting $8M/year.

      Noel and LeBron have same agent and supposedly want to play together.
      Derrick Rose has bone spur in ankle, may need surgery. Cavs won’t have to worry what to do with him!

    Nerlens should call guy who threw away his $112million Bitcoin computer. They could hang out. Maybe have a $5 pizza.
