Sixers GM says Michael Carter-Williams isn't ready for full contact
The tankiest team in the league still has a starting point guard who can't go full five-on-five after shoulder surgery four months ago.
* On the progress of Michael Carter-Williams following his April shoulder surgery: "Things are coming along. I haven't seen the full report of late and haven't seen the most recent checkup. He can shoot and is working hard. He is not ready for full five-on-five contact."
What's weird is that in a celebrity softball game, MCW hit a home run off Magic Johnson earlier this month, so the shoulder has to be a little better. So maybe it's less a matter of not being able to start five-on-five and just that he hasn't had the opportunity.
But it's been four months. Hopefully MCW can get be ready for the start of the season so that... um... the Sixers can...
Yeah, it doesn't matter if MCW plays or not, they'll be terrible. But Sixers fans are banking on the "young and fun" watchability of the Sixers this season, so losing MCW would be bad in that respect.
