Noel (knee) has also been dealing with back spasms, the Delaware County Daily Times reports. "It's nothing significant," head coach Brett Brown said. "It just a little tweak to his back, nothing that anybody has to write or get nervous about."
Richardson, who has yet to play a game this season, incurred swelling in his knee which has stunted his rehab and possibly his chance to play this season, the Daily Times reports. “Like I told (Sixers coach Brett Brown) when we talked a month ago, if it’s 10 or 15 or two games, I want to come back. That’s my goal. That’s my motivation. If it doesn’t happen, (my goal is) get ready for next year," said Richardson.
Noel (knee) has graduated in his rehab to playing one-on-one and participating in more physical drills, the Delaware County Daily Times reports. "He is (doing more). He’s slowly doing a little more physical stuff,” coach Brett Brown said. “He’s slowly doing a little more and you can play him against another body. I highlight the word ‘slowly’ and I highlight the word ‘cautiously,’ but he’s doing it."
