Steve Kyler: Pierre Jackson update - after tearing his Achilles yesterday, he going to back to Philly to meet with their doctors. What's next is unclear. The 76ers are still very high on Pierre Jackson, and don't view the injury as a career ender, but are not ready to make decisions yet. Twitter @stevekylerNBA

Nerlens Noel has the day off. The 76ers center will not compete in Sunday’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Orlando Pro Summer League, the Inquirer has learned. The 6-foot-11, 228-pounder has been working hard since the team started training on Monday. The Sixers want to be smart during this summer-league stretch. Philadelphia Inquirer

Noel had game highs of 19 points and four steals to go with three assists and a blocked shot in an 83-77 setback to the Magic on Saturday at the Orlando Pro Summer League. The 6-foot-11, 228-pounder was deadly from the foul line, making 7 of 7. He also scored on an array of dunks, floaters, and hook bank shots. His only downside was finishing with just two rebounds in 26 minutes, 17 seconds. Philadelphia Inquirer
