Philadelphia 76ers power forward Nerlens Noel underwent what the team calls “a minor elective arthroscopic procedure to address localized soreness associated with inflamed plica in his left knee.”
The surgery was performed by Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Riley J. Williams at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City and attended by Sixers Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Jonathan Glashow of Mt. Sinai Hospital.
Noel began his post-operative care at the Hospital for Special Surgery and will then travel to Birmingham, AL to continue his rehabilitation under the direction of Associate Clinical Director Kevin Wilk at Champion Sports Medicine.
It’s not known yet how long Noel will be out of action.
