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.

knee to go down before they consider re-inserting the point guard into
Carter-Williams, the 11th overall pick in the

Sixers (7-14), who have lost 10 of 12 games overall and five of the six the
rookie has missed this season.
A Sixers spokesman said Carter-Williams, who is with the
team at Monday’s shootaround at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine,
is hoping to travel with the team for Wednesday’s game at Minnesota and Friday’s
in Toronto. But no official decision has been made.
