Sixers guard Michael Carter-Williams hospitalized with infection in right knee

(Times staff / ERIC HARTLINE)
76ers guard Michael Carter-Williams is hospitalized with an infection in his right knee.

He's being treated at the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania, to where he was admitted Thursday, by team physician Brian Sennett and UPenn infectious disease specialist Neil Fishman, the team said Saturday.

There is no timetable for the return of Carter-Williams, the rookie point guard who has missed two straight games. He's averaging 17.7 points, 7.3 assists and 5.8 rebounds in 15 games.

“Michael is at UPenn still and will stay again overnight (for) more precautionary stuff with our team doctors,” coach Brett Brown said, before the Sixers faced visiting Denver. “It’s a right knee infection that’s being monitored closely, but nothing to get too overly concerned with.”
