Tom Moore

As #Sixers stand, would starters be MCW, McDaniels, Thompson, Young and Noel? #76ers

Keith Pompey

#Sixers center @Nerlens Noel's combined stats for the summer leagues: 13.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 1.8 steals. #notbad

Kevin Pelton

Couldn't get Noel to bite on whether he's a better defender than fellow UK star Anthony Davis (I would say yes, in college).

Royce Young

At first look, Dante Exum and Nerlens Noel have dazzled audiences: cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas…

Adi Joseph

Carter-Williams, Noel and Young likely are all better than any Lakers other than Healthy Kobe. Jordan Hill may be the exception.

Bob Cooney

No all, Nerlens is out

Roland Lazenby

Nerlens Noel is a freak in the SL. Hope he stays healthy.

Column: For Philadelphia's @Nerlens Noel, the NBA summer league couldn't come soon enough bit.ly/1wEoZqc

Jake Fischer

Nerlens said he had to leave the game with a little cramp. The ankle wrap was just taking advantage of the opportunity in training room.

Mike McGraw

McDermott scored 11 pts. The nba.com box score had Nerlens Noel a minus-21 in his battle with Cameron Baristow.

Jake Fischer

Bulls fans screaming at Nerlens he's overrated just seconds after Scottie Wilbekin hit nothing but the opposite side of the backboard on a 3

Kurt Helin

Nerlens Noel returns to game for Sixers.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Surprised, but Noel back in the game. Figured the 76ers would stay on the path of extreme caution.

Bob Cooney

Noel is back. Team said ankle got re-taped, but he was right in front of us holding his hamstring. Who knows, but he's back.

Jake Fischer

Nerlens to the scorer's table. He's set to check back in.

Jake Fischer

It looked like a hammy, weird. RT @Philadelphia 76ers Update: Nerlens Noel had his left ankle re-taped. He's available to return.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Nerlens Noel leaves with 7:20 left in the 3rd Q, probably for the night. Heads right to the locker room. Seems to be the right hamstring.

Kurt Helin

Noel went straight to locker room, hard to say what it was. Didn't look too serious, but maybe pulled muscle.

Bob Cooney

They took Noel to locker room

Kurt Helin

Nerlens Noel got tangled up with Cameron Bairstow and went down under basket. Stayed down for a bit, walked back to bench under own power.

Jake Fischer

Looks like Nerlens' right hamstring is bothering him. Probably cramping. He's been stretching after walking off the floor.

Bob Cooney

Noel down right in front of us. Right hamstring problem. I'd say done for night

Jake Fischer

I'm really digging these Nerlens-to-KJ back-door dimes.

Bob Cooney

Seven points and 3 boards for Noel at half. Starting third

Keith Pompey

#Sixers halftime scorers: .@JordyMac52 16, @Nerlens Noel 7, @KJMcDaniels 5, @SeanKilpatrick_ 3, Millsap 3, Gordon 3, Grant 2, Thomas 2.

Jake Fischer

Nerlens has been really fun to watch, but, and I mean this sincerely: Jordan McRae has been the best Sixers draft pick this summer.

Bob Cooney

When Noel establishes positioning down low, he doesn't plant and go towards the hoop. He plants, but then pivots away from basket.

Bob Cooney

I don't know if it's a bad habit or conditioning, but Noel has to get to running the floor.

Bob Cooney

Noel had 7 of the Sixers 15 points in the first. They down 23-15.

Bob Cooney

Noel ran for about 4 minutes, out now

Bob Cooney

Coaches reminding Sixers bigs to rim run. They did it well last night. Might be a little tired. Noel should be doing it every time, though

Bob Cooney

Chicago taking ball inside early. Got a dunk and now a foul on Noel. McDaniels is on McDermott.

Bob Cooney

McRae, McDaniels, Noel, Frazier and Davies are your Sixers starters

Jake Fischer

Tim Frazier, Jordan McRae, KJ McDaniels, Brandon Davies and Nerlens Noel your starters vs the Chicago McBucketses.

Bob Cooney

McRae and Noel both starting

Bob Cooney

Noel, McRae and McDaniels all available tonight, according to the team.

Bob Cooney

Noel and McDaniels both in layup line for Sixers.

Jake Fischer

Nerlens Noel, KJ McDaniels and Jordan McRae are on the court warming up with the Sixers. PLAYOFFS.

Bob Cooney

Nerlens is warming up. Looks like he's a go.

Bob Cooney

Waiting to see if Noel warms up....

Jake Fischer

If we don't have an official decision on Nerlens' status for tonight's game at this point, I think he's playing. KJ and McRae, probably not.
