Impact: Noel is dealing with a bit of a right thigh injury, and it will keep him out of Friday's preseason contest.

News: Noel scored 10 points (5-13 FG, 0-4 FT) with nine rebounds and three blocks in 31 minutes during Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets. Impact: Through two preseason games, Noel is a disconcerting 0-for-6 from the free throw line. Given that he shot just 53% from the charity stripe in his one and only college season, it's a fair question to wonder how much damage the rookie will do to your fantasy team in that category while he's getting you the front court stats you crave.(RotoWire, )

News: Noel had four points (2-9 FG, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, and one block in 27 minutes Tuesday. "He fouled out," coach Brett Brown said. "He was playing pretty quick, trying to find his feet, trying to find ways where he could impact the game. I thought defensively he was pretty good. Offensively he struggled. The speed of the game in his mind I felt got the better of him. But I saw good things from him and I think that this whole year is going to be one where we keep trying to polish him up and get him NBA ready." Impact: While it's never good to read too far into preseason production, something that can be taken from this game is that Noel will have his ups and downs this season due to the fact that he is still a rookie. He isn't known as an offensive player, so his FT and FG percentages could hurt his fantasy value this year. However, he should excel in the rebounds and blocks categories.(RotoWire, )
