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

Injured 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams said Monday night that he's not sure exactly when he'll return the court. The rookie missed his third straight game because of soreness and a skin infection on the front of his right knee. Carter-Williams spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at University of Pennsylvania hospital because of the ailment. Carter-Williams said he would play "when everyone says it will be OK for me to come back." 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

Michael-Carter Williams and Victor Oladipo made NBA history by becoming the first pair of rookies to have a triple-double in the same game. It was only the third time in NBA history that more than one rookie had a triple-double on the same day, but not necessarily in the same game. The other two occurrences were Tim Hardaway and David Robinson on February 2, 1990, and Grant Hill and Jason Kidd on April 7, 1995. ESPN.com

Safe to say MCW is about to be named Philly's first Rookie of the Month since Allen Iverson back in April 1997. Equally safe to say Sixers fans are watching what happens with New Orleans as closely as their own team with the Pels owing them a first-rounder in June unless it falls in the top five. ESPN.com

Nowadays, Carter-Zegarowski and her best friend, Tracie Tracy, are running his management team. They are taking a proactive approach to make sure he doesn't spend all his money in a couple of years. His rookie contract guarantees him $4.5 million over his first two seasons. He could make a total of $10 million if the Sixers pick up the final two seasons of his contract. But his salary is deposited into a trust he can't touch for three years. Carter-Williams is living off endorsement deals with Nike and Panini trading cards. That's just one of the benefits of having caring parents. Philadelphia Inquirer
