The Philadelphia 76ers will have rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams back when they take on the Toronto Raptors Wednesday night.
“I am just going to go out there and be aggressive and try to keep playing the way I was,” Carter-Williams told Del Lynam of CSN Philly. “I am not going to try and do anything extra; I am going to try and get my teammates involved and ease my way back into it. I am not going to try and play 110 percent, I am just going to play my game.”
Carter-Williams has been the league’s most productive rookie and has helped the 76ers get off to a surprising start. With Carter-Williams, the 76ers are 4-4. Without him, they are 1-3.
Carter-Williams is averaging 17.4 points, 7.6 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 2.6 steals per game this season.
Although Carter-Williams wanted to be back in the lineup, he thinks the rest helped him.
“I think the rest was good for me, rest is good for anybody,” Carter –Williams said. “My body was a little beat up but I am recovered now and I am all set.
The 76ers and Raptors will tip-off at 7:00 pm EST.
