Michael Carter-Williams not expected to play on 76ers road trip

After Michael Carter-Williams was seen wearing a walking boot on Friday afternoon, it was clear the foot injury he’s dealing with is not minor.

That said – the team refused to update Carter-Williams’ status before Friday’s game until they were required to, then officially listing him as out.

The Sixers have been more open with the injury come Saturday morning as head coach Brett Brown says he does not expect the start rookie to play in any of the three games on the Sixers upcoming road trip:

“I’m not really expecting to see him on this trip,” Brown said. “That may happen. I could be wrong. But in my own preparation, I’m not expecting to see him on this road trip. And if we do, we do.

“But otherwise we’ll move along with Darius [Morris] and Tony Wroten at the backup point guard position.”

There’s really little reason for Carter-Williams to see the floor, considering he could potentially cause further injury by playing so it’s best for all parties to allow Carter-Williams to rest until he feels healthy.
