Nerlens Noel had his ACL surgery yesterday in Gulf Breeze, Florida and according to John Calipari, it went well and Nerlens is just fine. This morning, Cal tweeted that Nerlens called him to give him an update and he put it on speakerphone so he could speak to the whole team. Cal said it was great for Nerlens’ teammates to hear from him after the surgery and that he thinks it helped Nerlens, too. “I can’t wait to see him back on the court,” Cal wrote.
Nerlens’ surgery was performed by world-renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who specializes in ACL surgeries on high-profile athletes. His expected recovery time is 6-8 months.
Get well soon, Nerlens.
