Nerlens Noel: (Knee) Out For The Season Staff

Update: Noel (left knee) has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season, ESPN's Andy Katz reports.

Recommendation: The worst fears were confirmed, as the knee injury Noel suffered Tuesday night will prevent him from playing any more this year. This is a big blow to Kentucky's chances the rest of the way, but an even bigger blow to a player who was on track to be one of, if not the top, pick in this summer's NBA draft. Noel will not undergo the procedure for a couple weeks to give the swelling time to subside, so it's likely that a decision on whether or not he will return to Kentucky for another season won't be made until after that.
