Coach Cal tweets Noel 'doing fine' after surgery

Nerlens Noel is in Gulf Breeze, Fla., this week to undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL he sustained almost exactly one month ago. Famed surgeon Dr. James Andrews - who has operated on the likes of Michael Jordan, Rajon Rondo and Robert Griffin III - performed the procedure Tuesday.

Wednesday morning, John Calipari took to Twitter to pass along the news that all had gone well.

That's certainly good news.

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.
