“I’ve seen a lot of Syracuse,” Carter-Williams said after putting up 19 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists as the Philadelphia 76ers beat former Syracuse star Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks, 110-106, at Madison Square Garden. “Tyler’s playing great. He’s leading that team, along with C.J. [Fair]. Jerami [Grant]‘s playing great, Trevor [Cooney] also. They’re also playing great. They’re 18-0, they can’t be doing any better. I think Tyler’s really stepped up. He plays with a lot of poise and confidence so I’m proud of him.” ZagsBlog.com

Carter-Williams will never score with the frequency Iverson did over an entire career, nor become the unique cultural icon, but he’s already shown Philadelphia flashes of the level of talent that made A.I. a legend there and the mental makeup to go with it. Now, he’s hearing about it, too. “I’m hearing the comparisons, and it’s an honor,” Carter-Williams told RealGM. “Allen Iverson was great, one of the best of all time. What he did for the city of Philadelphia is amazing.” RealGM

Is it really as bad as it seems? "Yes," Ford said via email. "Really, only Victor Oladipo and Michael Carter-Williams are proving to be valuable starters at the moment. A few others like Trey Burke, Mason Plumlee, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Steven Adams have been solid. Giannis Antetokounmpo looks like he might be a big star down the road. But all of those players except Oladipo weren't even in the conversation for the No. 1 pick." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Though he did make the trip with the team and was working out before the game last night, Michael Carter-Williams sat out his fourth consecutive game with soreness in his knee from a skin infection. He appeared to be moving a lot better than he had the past few days, but seeing him play tomorrow against the Raptors in Toronto may be a stretch. "It's something that was worrying but we're past that and we have it under control," Brett Brown said. "As an organization we did something smart a week ago when we kept him at home and didn't put him in the air and didn't chance anything. I'm thrilled we decided to take that route for him and it proved to be the correct one. It's a skin infection that now is under control and getting better and I think we assessed it right and dealt with him correctly." Philadelphia Inquirer

Carter-Williams was released from the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania Sunday, after being admitted Thursday with an infection on the front of his right knee. He was treated there by UPenn's infectious disease specialist Neil Fishman and Sixers team physician Brian Sennett. The injury stemmed from contact with another player Dec. 1 at Detroit. It's unlikely he'd be available Monday against the Clippers. For now, the 21-year-old Carter-Williams is on oral antibiotics. The Sixers are waiting for the soreness in the knee to go down before they consider re-inserting the point guard into the lineup. Sixers Dish
