Thunder center Nerlens Noel is in the hospital after taking a hard fall during Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves. Noel was contesting a layup by Minnesota's Andrew Wiggins in the third quarter when he caught an accidental elbow to the face that stunned him. He landed awkwardly and banged his head on the floor. Noel remained motionless underneath the basket for a couple minutes before being stretchered off the court and taken to OU Medical Center for an overnight stay. He was conscious when he left the court. Noel is averaging five points and nearly five rebounds for OKC this season.
