Sixers head coach Brett Brown says MCW is looking fit and strong, but he hasn’t taken part in any contact drills since undergoing surgery on May 6 to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
Per CSN Philly:
“I see a stronger body including his shoulder,” Brett Brown said Thursday after practice. “I see a more fit player including his wind and cardio stuff. I think that he is going on the path that we anticipated. What does that translate into him playing physical, five-on-five basketball? I still think he is a few weeks away.”
“He gets through all the shooting we are doing well,” Brown said. “He puts up shots and he seems to be doing things pain-free. That is obviously the barometer of when he can come back. He has passed all the tests to date, but I think it is still a ways away.”
Last season, Carter-Williams led all rookies in scoring (16.7), rebounding (6.3), and assists (6.2) on his way to earning the league’s Rookie of the Year award. […] “He has done a lot of lifting and shooting,” Brown said. “We haven’t completely wrapped him up in cotton wool, but almost.”
