The 76ers are saying that Michael Carter-Williams is fine.

It turns out, however, that his right-knee problems are being caused by an infection. The rookie point guard spent Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital because of soreness and a skin infection on the front of the knee.

The 6-foot-6, 185-pounder is being treated by infectious-disease specialist Neil Fishman and the team physician, Brian Sennett. He is listed as day-to-day after missing his second consecutive game, Saturday night against the Denver Nuggets at the Wells Fargo Center.

“More precautionary stuff with our team doctor,” coach Brett Brown said of Carter-Williams’ hospital stay. “It’s a right-knee infection that really is being monitored closely, but nothing to get too overly concerned with.”
