According to a press release on the Sixers website, rookie-phenom Michael Carter-Williams is day-to-day after his recent knee soreness was determined to have been caused by “a skin infection on the front of his right knee”.

The press release also discussed the doctors who are treating Carter-Williams.

Carter-Williams has been treated at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for the infection and is under the care of Head Team Physician Dr. Brian Sennett and Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Neil Fishman.

Carter-Williams hasn’t played since Tuesday night, when his first career triple double propelled the Sixers to a double-overtime win over the Orlando Magic. Carter-Williams missed last night’s loss against the Charlotte Bobcats, and according to the Sixers Twitter account, will miss tonight’s game against the Denver Nuggets.

There is absolutely no need to rush Carter Williams back. He is playing at a high level, which is somewhat counter productive to what the Sixers are trying to do right now, and with that, you don’t want him to further injure anything, regardless of how small this might seem.
