Washington Wizards to meet with Nerlens Noel, according to report

The Washington Wizards are expected to sit down with potential No. 1 pick Nerlens Noel on Saturday, according to a report.

Well, well, well, here's an interesting surprise. Nerlens Noel, the early favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, will visit with the Wizards on Saturday, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post:

Noel cannot work out due to a torn ACL, but this will be the first time the Wizards have sat down with him. They did not interview him at the combine because Noel was only supposed to interview with a couple teams. Noel traveled to Orlando on June 2 and will visit the Cavaliers on June 20.

Could this be an indication that Noel's stock is falling? Multiple reports suggest teams are concerned about his medical situation, even though Dr. James Andrews has said he's happy with Noel's progress. Would Noel have come to visit with the Wizards if the prognosis for his injured knee was better? These are questions that are definitely worth considering.
