NBA Draft Rumors: Nerlens Noel's Knee is '100 Percent Fine'

Kentucky Wildcats center Nerlens Noel is one of the most talented players in the 2013 NBA Draft class, but there is a chance that his knee could keep him from going as early as he should on Thursday night. Noel is recovering from a torn ACL and teams are doing their best to look in to his health and determine if Noel will be worth a top selection.

If you are to believe what Noel has passed along from his doctor, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic and/or Washington Wizards could very well end up with Noel on their roster.

According to Noel, his knee is ready to go.

The doctor said everything was perfect,” Noel said, via the Courier-Journal. “All three teams I’ve been to said it looks 100 percent fine and I’m definitely ahead of schedule. It’s all been positive feedback.”

Medicals are the only concern for Noel, so if the top three teams came back with the same results when they evaluated his injury during their pre-draft visits, you can bank on Noel being selected in the top three.
