Carter-Williams had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) procedures on both knees over the summer to address patella tears and reduce pain. Carter-Williams was cleared for on-court activity about two weeks ago, but he isn’t cleared for contact drills, as camp opens Tuesday morning at Spectrum Center. Carter-Williams is an important part of the Hornets’ remade second unit, and coach Steve Clifford said he doesn’t have a time projection on when Carter-Williams will be fully cleared. “I’ve had a lot of good days and a few bad days,” said Carter-Williams, who signed a one-season, $2.7 million contract in July. “Now it’s just about me putting a lot of load on them, and seeing how I feel the next day.

Chicago Bulls guard Michael Carter-Williams expects to play on Monday against the Indiana Pacers after missing the last two months because of left knee and left wrist injuries. Carter-Williams will meet with team doctors on Monday and if he is cleared, he will play. “That’s the plan, I believe,” Carter-Williams said before Sunday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs. “So hopefully we follow through with that.”
KC Johnson: Fred Hoiberg said Michael Carter-Williams has important doctor visit Friday. Hopeful he’s back next week.
Hoiberg didn’t sound overly concerned that Carter-Williams would have to miss more time because of the latest setback. “I don’t know if it was one thing that caused the progress to stall,” Hoiberg said. “He’s been doing great, his knee feels really good right now. He’s back doing full activity on the floor as far as running in a straight line and his activity level we’ll continue to ramp up as far as working on his legs. That’s the good thing about being that it’s not his dominant hand. So he’ll still be able to get out and shoot with his right hand, get out and shoot, and continue to increase his workload with his legs. He’ll be able to stay in pretty good shape, so when that thing is completely healed, he’ll be able to get back on the floor for us.”
Nick Friedell: Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg said after Thursday’s practice that Michael Carter-Williams was sent back to Chicago on Wednesday to have an MRI and a CT scan on his left wrist. The Bulls will have an update on MCW’s status on Friday.
According to Carter-Williams, it’s looking more like, “that four or maybe four-and-a-half week’’ period, as the 25-year-old said on Tuesday that he’s looking to return next week as long as there are no setbacks.
Earlier this morning, Michael Carter-Williams underwent an MRI on his left knee and left wrist. The results of the MRI showed that he sustained a bone bruise with no ligament damage to his knee, as well as a left wrist sprain. His recovery time is estimated to be between four and six weeks.

Complicating matters with that caveat of right now, of course, is the reality that the Sixers also do not appear close to a trade they are willing to go through with that gives Simmons his desired fresh start. More than two months after posting one of my Tuesday newsletter extravaganzas on Substack for the first time on July 13 — also a breakdown, on that occasion, of the latest on the Simmons front — Philadelphia looks no closer to a trade to bring an end to this stalemate.
Weeks of Philadelphia’s Simmons talks with various teams haven’t brought the Sixers to the brink of a deal, largely because Morey is the one faced with trying to get commensurate value for his All-Star and still asking for so much in return in his determination to recoup a trade package that, as one source put it, keeps Philadelphia in title contention. History, however, says that Philadelphia’s president of basketball operations shouldn’t count on getting a glittering package back when a deal finally materializes — his own history.
I reported Monday that the Sixers don’t expect Simmons to show and are resigned to try to keep working behind the scenes to try to convince him to reconsider that stance. After I published that, another source close to the situation told me: “Right now, I don’t see a scenario where Ben is back in Philly.” The source meant it with permanence. As in: Simmons’ career with the Sixers, to the source, is over.
I was told very clearly that the Sixers do not liken these circumstances to Al Horford’s last season in Oklahoma City or John Wall’s in Houston. As the start of training camp draws near, Philadelphia has shown zero interest to date in striking the sort of mutual agreement that Wall and the Rockets just hatched to shelve the former All-Star point guard.
