Michael Carter-Williams set to return for PhillyPosted by Inside Hoops
The Philadelphia 76ers need help, and they’re about to get it in the form of their fantastic rookie point guard. Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer reporting:
A second straight strong practice has 76ers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams feeling ready to return to the lineup for Friday’s game at the Wells Fargo Center against the Brooklyn Nets.
Carter-Williams missed the last seven games with a skin infection and soreness in the front of his right knee.
While he is listed as a game-time decision, coach Brett Brown and Carter-Williams indicated that, barring any setback, he would play Friday.
“Nobody is making a 100 percent commitment that he is playing. We think he is, he has practiced well,” Brown said after Thursday’s workout. “We assume he will be in the lineup.”
Carter-Williams was also making that assumption.
