Carter-Williams missed a game this week as a precaution after bumping his shoulder on a screen, then almost missed the Sixers' loss in Brooklyn after dealing with a personal matter in Boston and getting stuck in the snow. MCW still finished with 21 points in the loss, and finished January averaging 16.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists, numbers which should yield him Player of the Month honors.
For the season, MCW is averaging 17.3 points, 6.6 assists and 5.4 rebounds even though he has shot the ball at just above a 40 percent clip.
With his surprising success (he was drafted 11th overall) and the reemergence of Brooklyn's Shaun Livingston it should be interesting to see where Australia's Dante Exum falls in the draft because 6'6 point guards should be in high demand.
The other bright spot has been Evan Turner who is averaging just under 18 points and hit a difficult runner at the buzzer to beat Boston six days ago.
