Carter-Williams won’t be playing due to a toe injury, but he is in New York to support his teammates and he believes the fact that Philadelphia is so well represented in the Rising Stars Challenge says something about the direction that the team is headed. “It means a lot, it says a lot about our team and the young talent that we have,” Carter-Williams told Basketball Insiders. “I’m just happy that those guys are there and being able to play. I’m going to cheer these guys on and Nerlens and Robert should do great.” Basketball Insiders

Carter-Williams, who was last season’s Rookie of the Year, looks at Philadelphia’s roster and sees a team that could eventually be very good. “I think we can be good if we get a couple more pieces, grow ourselves and really put in work in the offseason,” Carter-Williams said. “I think we can be pretty good and contend in the East and make a playoff run. “I think a lot of people look at our record and the games we’ve lost and get impatient and think that we are never going to be good, but it does take time to grow just like with anything. We were not going to come into the league and dominate right away – it takes time to grow pieces and just to be good. It always takes time.” Basketball Insiders

Point guard Michael Carter-Williams left at the 7-minute, 31-second mark of the third quarter with a left shin contusion. His status was not known for the game Tuesday against the Denver Nuggets at the Wells Fargo Center. Rookie center Nerlens Noel was benched for the final 4:39 of the game in favor of reserve Jerami Grant, who was more effective. "It says that we are right there and we have fight," Grant said of hanging tough with the Cavs and the Hawks on consecutive games. "I think eventually we are going to get over the hump and start turning these into wins." Philadelphia Inquirer
