February 12, 2013, that is the last time Nerlens Noel has played in an actual game. Noel tore his ACL against Florida and has been working on getting it back to 100-percent.Now it seems that the former Kentucky Wildcat has to wait a little bit longer until he plays his first NBA game.
Nerlens Noel won’t be in uniform tonight for #76ers. So no 4-4-14 for him. “Nerlens is simply not ready,” coach Brett Brown said

In March Nerlens Noel tweeted out “4-4-14″, which is the date he was planning on making his rookie debut. But it now appears his knee is just not ready to join the 76ers to play the Boston Celtics Friday night.
The Sixers took a risk when they traded for Noel. Most believed he wouldn’t be able to play at all in his rookie season. Every ACL injury is different, some come back quick like Adrian Peterson. Noel doesn’t want to play too soon and re-injure himself.
