Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams underwent surgery to repair the labrum of his right shoulder, according to the Delaware County Daily Times.
Insight: Carter-Williams was named NBA Rookie of the Year on Monday. The NBA season took its toll on MCW, costing him 12 games due to a left foot bruise, a knee infection and a sore shoulder. However, he finished strong with averages of 17.8 points on .512 shooting, 7.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.5 steals over his last 10 games. With two picks in the lottery, the 76ers' roster should be much improved next season as Carter-Williams tries to improve upon his 16.7 ppg on .405 shooting, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game.

Insight: He's only the third rookie in NBA history to average at least 16 points, six rebounds and six assists. MCW isn't a good shooter (40.5 percent) and he can be a bit turnover-prone (3.5 turnovers per game) but his versatility still makes him a strong fantasy asset. At age 22, he's only going to get better.

Description: Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams had another near triple-double Saturday in a loss to Charlotte.
Insight: MCW finished with 23 points, seven boards and eight assists. When Carter-Williams (16.7 ppg, 6.3 apg, 6.1 rpg, 1.9 spg) inevitably wins NBA Rookie of the Year, he'll be the highest draft pick to win the award since Mark Jackson in 1988.

Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams nearly had a triple-double Friday against the Knicks.

Insight: But more importantly, he had nine rebounds and seven assists, putting him within striking distance of his third triple-double of the season. Wednesday was the Sixers' 22nd loss in a row. That's a new franchise record.
 
3/10/2014 10:20:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard Michael Carter-Williams produced his second career triple-double Monday in a loss to New York.
Insight: Carter-Williams finished with 23 points, 13 boards and ten assists. As bad as the 76ers have been lately (17 straight losses), Carter-Williams is still a leading candidate for Rookie of the Year.

Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams has made just 21-of-72 (.292) from the field over his last five games.

Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams was a game-time decision Monday due to a shoulder injury, but he ended up playing 36 minutes and scoring 21 points against the Nets.
Insight: Sixers coach Brett Brown attributed the injury to the typical wear and tear of the NBA season, and resting him Monday would have been a strictly precautionary move by a team that is playing for the future.

The 76ers are playing for the future and have shown they have no problem sitting Carter-Williams to rest minor ailments, but it appears he will get on the floor tonight.

Insight: He's out with a sore shoulder. Backup point guard Tony Wroten played well when MCW was sidelined with a knee infection a couple months ago. If Wroten (12.4 ppg) is available on waivers, we'd recommend scooping him up now before someone else does.

1/6/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams is probable for Monday's game against Minnesota.
Insight: MCW took a blow to the head at the end of Saturday's win over Portland, but it appears he didn't suffer a concussion and is ready to go Monday night. The 22-year-old is a leading candidate for ROY averaging 17.2 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 7.2 apg.
 
1/5/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams left Saturday's game against Portland due to a head injury.

12/18/2013 6:07:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, but coach Brett Brown says he is, "Not sure," if MCW will play Friday against Brooklyn.
Insight: A skin infection on Carter-Williams' right knee has kept him out for the last seven games. He's been a top fantasy option when healthy and still is the frontrunner for the NBA Rookie of the Year.
 
12/16/2013 11:54:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams will miss his seventh straight game Monday versus Brooklyn.
Insight: A skin infection on his right knee has kept him out for the last six games. Tony Wroten has played well in his absence so the Sixers aren't rushing Carter-Williams back into action.
