                  === Sixers' G Carter-Williams will play ===
 
 Philadelphia,  PA  (SportsNetwork.com) - Philadelphia 76ers rookie point guard
 Michael Carter-Williams will return to the lineup to take on the Brooklyn Nets
 on Friday.
 
 Carter-Williams,  who missed  the  last 11  tilts with  a  knee infection,  is
 leading  the  rookie class in  nearly every statistical category. The Syracuse
 product  is averaging  17.7 points, 7.3 assists and 5.8 rebounds per game this
 season. He is also leading the league with 3.1 steals per contest.
 
 The Sixers went 1-10 with Carter-Williams out of the lineup, with the lone win
 coming in overtime against Orlando.
 
 "I  have  had two good  practices," said Carter-Williams.  "I felt good. I was
 shooting after, so I am ready to go."
 
 Nets' veteran big man Kevin Garnett (rest) will miss the contest.
