Michael Carter-Williams racked up a season-high six steals vs. Miami on Tuesday, to go along with 20 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, five assists and one block.
MCW's big game helped Philly earn their second straight victory, and he's found a nice groove after a slow start following his shoulder injury. The 76ers are last in the NBA in offensive efficiency by an enormous margin -- their 91.4 points per 100 possessions trail the 29th-placed Pacers by nearly six points -- and they'd be even worse if it weren't for Carter-Williams' individual efforts.

Date:

Michael Carter-Williams had his second triple-double of the season on Saturday during a 120-115 overtime loss to the Grizzlies with 16 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, one 3-pointer and six turnovers.

He ranks third among guards for rebounds and his dimes are really on the rise from last season. On the other hand, Carter Williams is still making just 38.8 percent from the field and 62.5 percent from the line with his leading-leading 4.8 turnovers per game on the season, so those negatives are really going to hold him back. It is what it is.
Dec 13 - 11:19 PM

Michael Carter-Williams scored 14 points in an 88-70 loss to the Nets on Friday, adding six rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

The 76ers set the NBA record in the shot clock era for fewest two-point makes in a game with 11. LeBron James, LaMarcus Aldridge and Derrick Rose each had more of those tonight, so that's good. As for Carter-Williams, he should be fine with the return of Tony Wroten.
Dec 13 - 12:20 AM

Michael Carter-Williams flirted with a quadruple-double against the Hawks on Wednesday with eight points, 10 rebounds, nine assist and nine turnovers in 38 minutes.

He made 4-of-7 from the field and blocked two shots. The Hawks turned Carter-Williams into a jump shooter, which is probably going to happen more from his opponents. Carter-Williams is going to turn the ball over a ton and shoot the ball poorly, so his upside is capped.
Dec 10 - 11:48 PM

Michael Carter-Williams made 8-of-12 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for 20 points with eight boards, 15 assists, three steals, two blocks and seven turnovers.

His shot selection was outstanding tonight with 10 of his 12 shots coming from within six feet. It's nice to him shoot the ball well and hopefully this continues because only poor shooting can keep him down. He played 45 minutes tonight and the team is going to give him a ton of burn until Tony Wroten (knee) is back.
Dec 6 - 10:42 PM

Michael Carter-Williams was busy against the Thunder on Friday during a 103-91 loss, making 6-of-19 from the field for 16 points with seven rebounds, 14 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

He is doing all he can for the 76ers on offense and his logging serious minutes because the team doesn't have a backup point guard. They also signed guard Malcolm Lee, so chances are Tony Wroten (knee) and Alexey Shved (hip) are not close to a return. Carter-Williams should be filling up the stat sheets, but the poor shooting and turnovers aren't going anywhere either.
Dec 5 - 11:05 PM

Michael Carter-Williams hit 9-of-20 shots and just missed a triple-double with 20 points, nine rebounds, nine assists and three steals as the Sixers beat the Timberwolves for their first win of the season, pulling their record to 1-17.

MCW is rolling right now and had 24 points and a fat line on Monday, as well. He didn't hit a 3-pointer and committed six turnovers tonight, but if you can live with the poor shooting and TOs, MCW should be among the league leaders in minutes the rest of the way.
Dec 4 - 1:07 AM

Michael Carter-Williams made 9-of-19 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for 24 points against the Spurs on Monday with 11 boards, seven assists and two 3-pointers.

It was just his second game of the season with an effective field goal percentage over 50 and he was much better at getting shots near the basket tonight. His turnovers are still out of control and he'll need to get better in that department as well as shoot the ball better in order to be a No. 1 fantasy point guard. Carter-Williams gets a nice matchup on Wednesday against Minnesota.
Dec 1 - 9:44 PM

Michael Carter-Williams dropped his third career triple-double against the Mavericks on Saturday with 18 points, 10 rebounds, 16 assists, one steal, five turnovers and no 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He made 10-of-12 from the line, but did struggle from the field at just 4-of-13. It was easily his best game of the season and he wasn't taking many bad shots either with a just a 25.4 usage (he has three games of at least 39.0). Carter-Williams is going to be solid in points, boards, assists and steals, but there will be some negatives. His fantasy owners have to feel good after this one due to how he was posting just 401st-ranked value in standard leagues on a per-game basis. Also, he did have a minor ankle tweak in the last minute, so his owners will want to keep an eye on that.
Nov 29 - 9:55 PM

Michael Carter-Williams made 1-of-9 from the field for four points with six rebounds, eight assists, one block, one 3-pointer and three turnovers before fouling out in 27 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

His shooting is just awful and he's down to 34.4 percent on the season. At least he only attempted nine shots, which is a season low and way below his 16.1 per game. Carter-Williams is doing plenty in the other categories, but his misses and turnovers have destroyed his value in standard leagues. He's not showing any indication of getting better either.
Nov 26 - 9:48 PM

Michael Carter Williams made 10-of-24 from the field for 24 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

Last season, he was dead last among qualifiers in effective field goal percentage, so why not take 24 shots tonight? Carter-Williams didn't take any treys tonight and only had eight mid-range shots on his way to a Kobe Bryant-like usage rate of 39.7. The usage is extremely high and the stats are going to be there, but they're going to be negated by some awful percentages.
Nov 25 - 12:26 AM

Michael Carter-Williams made 4-of-13 from the field for nine points against the Knicks on Saturday to go with four rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

Yikes. He is really struggling with his shot and there were about five shots that wouldn't have gone in with a rim two times the normal size. There's really no chance he is going to improve on his shooting this season, but the accounting stats will be there. Carter-Williams will really have to fill it up to be a top-60 guy.
Nov 23 - 12:47 AM

Michael Carter-Williams had a typical line against the Suns on Friday, making 6-of-18 from the field and 6-of-11 from the line for 18 points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal, five turnovers and no turnovers.

He is going to get his points, rebounds, assists and steals, but the turnovers and weak percentages are really going to hurt him in standard leagues. Carter-Williams gets a great matchup on Saturday against the Knicks, who rank last in the Eastern Conference in defensive efficiency.
Nov 21 - 9:19 PM

Michael Carter-Williams made his first start of the season on Wednesday but hit just 4-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, six rebounds, five assists, a steal and four turnovers in a loss to Boston.

MCW's downfall is the TOs and poor shooting, and both were on display tonight. He's going to get hot and score a lot of points and fill the stat sheet, but he usually does plenty of harm despite the good things he does in fantasy.
Nov 19 - 11:51 PM

Michael Carter-Williams will make his first start of the season against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He's played fine off the bench in 29.0 minutes per game, averaging 16.0 points, 6.0 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 triples with a 30.7 usage rate. Carter-Williams should be the main guy in the lineup for Philly and should fill the stat sheet in an inefficient manner. Get him in your lineup.
