Michael Carter-Williams Could Miss Opener
Michael Carter-Williams said Monday that the original timetable for return from his injury was 6-9 months.That timetable conflicts with the two-to-four month timetable the Sixers released at that point, notes Tom Moore of Calkins Media . The reigning Rookie of the Year has yet to play in the preseason this month, though Carter-Williams added that he’s ahead of that six-to-nine month schedule.
"I wish I was [able to scrimmage], but that’s doctors’ orders, so I have to listen to what they say and come back 100 percent," MCW said. "I’m plenty ahead of schedule, and I feel great."
Carter-Williams says that he feels great, but there is still currently no set date for his return. The second-year guard averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists, and 1.9 steals per game during his Rookie of the Year season.
