My immediate reaction was “do tell,” but without a response on Twitter, we have no idea what Noel meant when he tweeted just that date: April 4, 2014.

A Sixers spokesman would not specifically address Noel's tweet, but did say "Noel continues to make progress. He has medical criteria he must pass and when he does that, we will tell you."

Noel is from the Boston area and the Sixers do play at TD Garden Arena that night against the Celtics. Including that night, he could appear in seven games.

If Noel, who was selected sixth overall in last year’s NBA draft, played that night, it would be his first appearance in a Sixers uniform since coming to the team in a draft-night trade last June.
