One player that isn't heading anywhere today, and you can bet on that, is breakout rookie Michael Carter-Williams. He is tied for second on the team averaging 17.1 points per game which leads all rookies. He also leads rookies in assists (6.3), rebounds (5.3), and steals (2.1).
One problem Carter-Williams is having is staying on the court. He has only appeared in 43 of the Sixers 55 games this season. That's not terrible but he is dealing with another ailment this week. CSN Philly reports Carter-Williams is dealing with flu-like symptoms and did not practice on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old has scored in double figures in his last 10 games but he has appeared tired at this point in the season. Look no further than his season-low one assist on Tuesday night against Cleveland.
Carter-Williams was in New Orleans for NBA All-Star Weekend as he participated in the Rising Stars Challenge and the Skills Challenge. Coach Brett Brown agreed that he also thinks Carter-Williams is tired.
The Sixers get back at it tomorrow night at the Wells Fargo Center against the Dallas Mavericks at 7:00 pm.
