Noel Hospitalized After Fall

Thunder’s Nerlens Noel Hospitalized After Scary Fall vs. Wolves

In what was a scary scene on Tuesday night, Oklahoma City Thunder center Nerlens Noel was hospitalized overnight after an ugly fall against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In an attempt to contest a dunk attempt, the 24-year old was hit in the face by Andrew Wiggins’ elbow. After the contact, Noel fell to the floor, banging the side of his head off the hardwood. As team medical personnel rushed to cater to the big man, it appeared as though Noel briefly lost consciousness.

Noel was stretchered off the court.

“I just tried to make an aggressive move and dunk,” Wiggins said. “He tried to contest it. I think he fell wrong. I didn’t really see it until I saw him on the ground. Hopefully he’s good. I hope nothing but the best for him. I hope he gets healthy soon and comes back stronger.”

It is unclear if Noel is dealing with any concussion-like symptoms and the hospitalization was a pre-caution.

“It was just a really s— play,” said Thunders’ Steven Adams. “It’s unfortunate that it happened. Obviously, Wiggins didn’t mean anything in that — that should be said. He shouldn’t be taking any blame for it whatsoever. It’s just one of those crazy plays that happens. Fortunately, they responded quite quickly, the medical staff and whatnot. It was really good. I felt like he was in the best hands at the time, which was good.”

In a very scary scene to start the new year, every one is hoping Noel will be back on the floor soon.
