Nerlens Noel is expected to miss three to five weeks with his surgery on his left knee.
Noel's surgery will address an inflamed plica above his left knee.
Dr. Riley Williams will scope the area during a 10-minute procedure.
Noel's only game action this preseason came in the Oct. 4 opener against Boston at the University of Massachusetts. He finished that game with six points on 3-for-8 shooting. Noel also finished with three rebounds, two assists and one steal.
Noel will be a restricted free agent in 2017.
