NEW YORK - The 76ers probably have an idea when Michael Carter-Williams is going to return the lineup. But they are using every allowable minute to keep outsiders in the dark.
The rookie point guard did not play in Monday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center. It was the seventh consecutive game Carter-Williams has missed because of a skin infection and soreness to the front of his right knee.
Carter-Williams had an ice pack on his right knee after the Monday morning shootaround, which he did not participate in. Carter-Williams has not practiced or played since the Sixers' 126-125 victory over Orlando on Dec. 3.
