From earlier: NEW YORK – Michael Carter-Williams is in New York with the 76ers after spending Sunday in the Boston area for personal reasons. A source said he was attending to a family issue.

The rookie point guard will be a game-time decision for Monday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center. He flew to Boston after Saturday night’s loss to Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills, Mich.  Carter-Williams was not with the team during Monday morning’s shootaround. 

The 22-year-old missed Saturday’s 113-99 setback to the Pistons with a sore right shoulder.

Forum: When will the 76ers be a contender?

The 11th overall pick out of Syracuse had been dealing with a sore shoulder and expected to play against the Pistons. The Sixers, however, decided to sit him for precautionary reasons.

Carter-Williams said he injured his shoulder while running into a screen in a recent game.

It was the 12th game he missed this season because of injury. The Sixers (15-33) are 1-11 in games he's missed.
