According to multiple reports, Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle told media members that center Nerlens Noel has torn ligaments in his thumb and will need surgery.

Carlisle made the announcement Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time) before the Mavericks game with the Boston Celtics. He's appeared in 18 games with six starts this season, averaging 4.0 points and 4.1 rebounds. It is not immediately clear what caused the injury, and Noel hasn't played more than six minutes in a game since November 4. Instead of Noel, the team has used a myriad of lineups, with Dirk Nowitzki, Maximilian Kleber, and Salah Mejri all seeing additional run. He was offered a one-year, $4.1 million qualifying offer by the Mavericks in June, waiting over two months before finally accepting it. Once the sixth-overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft out of Kentucky, Noel was named NBA All-Rookie first team in 2015 and has now seen his minutes dwindle in a less-than-ideal situation with Dallas.
