Michael Carter-Williams has been out seven games (all Philadelphia losses) with a right knee infection, but the rookie point guard is expected to return to the Sixers' lineup Friday night when they play host to the Nets, according to Dei Lynam of CSNPhilly.com.

“I have had two good practices,” Carter-Williams told Lynam after practice on Thursday. “I felt good. I was shooting after, so I am ready to go.”

After winning its first three games, including over Miami on opening night, Philadelphia is 4-19, with losses in 11 of its last 12 games. The Sixers gave up 130 points in Brooklyn on Monday and 139 to the Trail Blazers on Saturday.

Carter-Williams' last game was also Philly's last win, when he had a triple-double against Orlando. The 22-year-old out of Syracuse is averaging 17.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists in 15 career games.
