Sixers Injury Update: Michael Carter-Williams will resume full practice on Thursday

By on 11/06/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Philadelphia 76ers entered Wednesday night's game against the Orlando Magic with an 0-4 record on the 2014-2015 season. Clearly in a rebuilding mode which could take a few seasons before contending, the 76ers have been without point guard Michael Carter-Williams.  The good news is that Carter-Williams will resume full practice today and could be ready to play soon.

Our own Eric Black reported on November 4 that Carter-Williams,  who underwent Labrum surgery six months ago, was going through half-court non-contact offensive drills and may return very soon.

Max Rappaport, who covers the 76ers for, tweeted the following confirming Carter-Williams' status.
Tony Wroten has seen the bulk of the minutes at the point in the absence of Carter-Williams. Wroten is averaging 19.3 points in 33.5 minutes per game entering Wednesday's contest.

Carter-Williams, a 22-year old guard out of Syracuse, averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists, 6.2 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game in his rookie season.  He joined Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson as only players to average at least 16 points, six rebounds and six assists in their rookie season.
