Noel was a late scratch before Sunday's game due to right ankle soreness. The Thunder were being cautious with Noel and decided to sit him out Sunday. It is unclear if he will miss additional time, but his next chance to return will be Monday against the Suns. Noel is averaging 7.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.5 blocks across 59 games this season.
