Michael Carter-Williams to Miss Game vs. Bobcats
Michael Carter-Williams did not travel with the 76ers for Friday's game in Charlotte and will miss the game with a injured knee. He was seen limping at practice and is wearing a sleeve on his balky right knee and said that his swollen right knee is "still pretty painful."
"I was real sore out there," he said after Tuesday's double-overtime game where he was able to play 46 minutes and record a triple-double. "It started to stiffen up on me as the game went on. It’s my right knee. I bumped knees with someone in the previous game [Sunday at Detroit]."
Carter-Williams added that he hasn't even tried running on his knee yet, and is obviously still bothered by the injury suffered bumping knees in Sunday's game at Detroit. With Carter-Williams out, Tony Wroten will step in at point guard.
"He has been advised that we have to be really cautious," said coach Brett Brown about Carter-Williams knee.
Wroten is averaging 19.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 2.0 steals in four fill-in starts this season.
