OKC Thunder: Nerlens Noel available for 76ers scrimmage
Thunder center Nerlens Noel will play Sunday against the 76ers, coach Billy Donovan said before tip-off.
Noel missed the Thunder's first scrimmage Friday with an ankle injury. The backup big man is averaging 7.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game in his second season with the Thunder.
Abdel Nader is the only Thunder player unavailable Sunday, Donovan said. Nader entered concussion protocol Saturday.
Donovan plans to play his starters in the third quarter. Chris Paul, Danilo Gallinari and Steven Adams only played in the first half Friday.
The Thunder and 76ers will tip-off at 11 a.m. at HP Field House in Orlando.
