Wednesday morning, John Calipari took to Twitter to pass along the news that all had gone well.
Got a call from @nerlensnoel3 yesterday & put it on speakerphone so he could talk to the team. The surgery went well and he's doing fine.-- John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) March 13, 2013
That's certainly good news.
It was great for his teammates to hear from him after surgery and I think it helped Nerlens too. I can't wait to see him back on the court.-- John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) March 13, 2013
This week is spring break for all UK students, which is the reason Noel elected to have the surgery now. Dr. Scott Mair of UK Sports Medicine is with Noel and will help coordinate his return to Lexington.
Once Noel is back in the Bluegrass, he will begin the rehab process while continuing to attend classes. Coach Cal said earlier this week he will recommend that Noel gauge his rehab progress over the next two months and make a decision on whether to enter the NBA Draft or return for a second season at UK.
