Sixers Injury Update: Michael Carter-Williams participates in non-contact drills

By on 11/04/2014 03:50:00 PM

Reigning NBA rookie of the year Michael Carter-Williams may be nearing a return from offseason shoulder surgery, to the excitement of NBA fans across the country. The second year guard out of Syracuse underwent Labrum surgery six months ago and may be returning very soon, as reported by 76ers beat writer Tom Moore.

Moore later reported that Sixers coach Brett Brown revealed Carter-Williams' expected return date to be November 13th. While this date will likely change as Carter-Williams' status is updated in the coming days, an estimated return date is a good thing to hear for 76ers fans.

Carter-Williams' return will be a welcome sight for Philadelphia, who has begun the season by losing its first four games. The 76ers have averaged just 90.3 points per game, the third-worst rank in the NBA. While Tony Wroten has exceeded expectations in place Carter-Williams, he is likely to be relieved of the starting point guard duties upon Carter-Williams' return. Wroten will not lose too many touches however, because he has proved to be a very skilled player offensively. Skilled offensive players are scarce in Philadelphia, and Wroten's success thus far in the season has earned him major minutes in an otherwise unsuccessful Philadelphia offense.
