Report: Michael Carter-Williams pulls out of Rising Stars Challenge

10 Comments

Steven Adams’ injury forced him out of the Rising Stars Challenge, and Jusuf Nurkic took his spot on the World team.

Now, the NBA reportedly must find a replacement for the U.S. team.

David Pick of EuroBasket:

Michael Carter-Williams has missed the 76ers’ last three games with a sore right foot. Obviously, it’s not worth pushing it for this event.

How about one of Carter-Williams teammates – Robert Covington or K.J. McDaniels  – replace him?
