08:14 AM ET 02.20 | When Nerlens Noel tore the ACL in his left knee Feb. 12, it seemed merely to be a case of bad luck. But a largely forgotten incident early in Noel's high school career could raise questions about potential structural issues with his leg, and whether he risked further damage by returning from that injury too quickly. Five games into his sophomore season at Everett (Mass.) High, Noel fractured a growth plate in his left knee and missed the rest of the season. John DiBiaso, his former coach, said in a phone interview that doctors told Noel to rest the knee through the summer. But, DiBiaso said, Noel started playing with his travel team that spring at the urging of his advisers.

Hope the kid can read and write. Then there is always toll booth school.

Don't think he's fit in the toll booth....
