MCW has been recovering from undergoing shoulder surgery back in May…
Philadelphia 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams has set his sights on a return on November 13 after undergoing shoulder surgery earlier this year.
Carter-Williams won the Rookie of the Year award last season but he has been out of action since May after surgery on his right shoulder.
The 23-year-old averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists and 6.2 rebounds last year despite the Sixers ending the regular season with the second-worst record in the NBA.
However, the franchise appear to be set to be handed a boost with claims that Carter-Williams will make his comeback on November 13 against the Dallas Mavericks, team sources told ESPN.
Nevertheless, there are also suggestions that the Sixers could hold him back with general manager Sam Hinkie set to show little desire in winning games this season in order to land another top draft pick as the franchise continues its rebuilding process.
Philadelphia will already be without some key young pieces on their roster with 2014 Draft pick Joel Embiid expected to miss the entire season with a foot injury.
In addition, Nerlens Noel missed all of last season whilst recovering from an ACL injury and he has now missed the last three pre-season games due to a respiratory infection.
The 76ers open their season on the road against the Indiana Pacers next Wednesday, but their fans are expecting a long and difficult season as they continue to look ahead to the long-term future by piecing together talented young players.
Carter-Williams will likely be given as long as possible to recover from his shoulder surgery, and so the November date is likely to be a rough guide as to when he will return to action.
