Noel to miss second game

ATLANTA – Nerlens Noel will miss his second consecutive game when the 76ers face the Atlanta Hawks at Philip Arena on Wednesday.

The power forward had already missed Monday's setback at the Chicago Bulls with a left-eye corneal abrasion. He suffered the injury in the third quarter of  Sunday's loss at the Toronto Raptors while being elbowed by Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry. He was taken to an area hospital.

"Looking at light bothers him," coach Brett Brown said before Monday's game.

Noel is averaging 9.9 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.0 block.
