  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Orlando Magic

    Michael Carter-Williams made his Magic debut on Sunday logging 15 minutes with five points, four boards and an assist.

    Carter-Williams was horrible as he committed three fouls and missed all of his three shots from the field while hitting 5-of-8 from the line. Don't expect any value out of MCW.

  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic signed Michael Carter-Williams to a 10-day deal on Friday.

    Carter-Williams never followed up his ROTY campaign and now he's just shuttling around the league trying to find a spot to stick. Fantasy implications are nonexistent at this point.

  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Houston Rockets

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets have traded Michael Carter-Williams and cash to the Bulls for a heavily protected second-round pick.

    The move creates an open roster spot for the Rockets and helps take money off of the books for the luxury tax. MarShon Brooks was waived in order to make room for MCW. Carter-Williams is likely to be waived before the 5 P.M. deadline at which point his contract would become fully guaranteed.

  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Houston Rockets

    Michael Carter-Williams played four minutes on Saturday night, scoring five points with a 3-pointer.

    MCW got off the bench with Chris Paul out but there's no need for fantasy owners to look his way. The entire second unit was junk tonight — Isaiah Hartenstein went scoreless while Gerald Green and Gary Clark combined for 11 points. Even starter P.J. Tucker was lackluster with seven points and eight rebounds in 42 minutes as the Rockets picked up another loss.

  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Houston Rockets

    Michael Carter-Williams (illness) was available to play on Saturday but didn't leave the bench.

    MCW was actually sick, unlike Carmelo Anthony's potentially phantom illness, but was able to play if needed. There's no reason for fantasy owners to look his way.

  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Houston Rockets

    Michael Carter-Williams (illness) will play in Saturday's game against the Spurs.

    Carter-Williams has no fantasy value in even the best of situations.

  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Houston Rockets

    Michael Carter-Williams (illness) is questionable to play on Saturday against the Spurs.

    Carter-Williams holds no value with lead ball-handlers James Harden Chris Paul playing and should obviously be left on the wire no matter the depth of your league.

    Michael Carter-Williams (illness) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest vs. the Thunder.

    Carter-Williams has been a disappointment for the Rockets thus far after scoring in double figures just twice this season. He is a good defender, but can't stretch the floor so it was an odd signing from the get-go. He can be ignored fantasy wise since he isn't ranked inside the top-300

    Michael Carter-Williams logged 20 minutes in his start on Wednesday against the Jazz, but managed just seven points with two assists, one steal and one three.

    MCW could get even more opportunity if James Harden (hamstring) misses any time. There's no sense in betting big on him being really good in DFS formats, but he should be worth a look as a punt play if Harden is on the shelf.

  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Houston Rockets

    Michael Carter-Williams will join the Rockets' starting lineup on Wednesday, with James Ennis out.

    He joins James Harden, PJ Tucker, Eric Gordon, and Clint Capela tonight and will deliver low-end guard value at best. Carter-Williams will see a bump in value for the night but is more of a DFS play than someone to consider as an add in season-long leagues.

  • Michael Carter-Williams - G - Houston Rockets

    Michael Carter-Williams said that his knee has not hindered him in any way and it will not be an issue as he moves into the starting lineup tonight with James Ennis III out and Chris Paul completing his two-game suspension.

    Regardless, the Rockets are being cautious here limiting him to 15 to 18 minutes. MCW has struggled in his brief stints on the floor so far this year, averaging 11.3 minutes and making just 5-of-16 shots, while trying to adjust to playing off the ball more than he is accustomed to.

    Carter-Williams was fully expected to play after practicing each of the past two days, but will be limited to 15-20 minutes tonight.

    With Michael Carter-Williams back at practice on Monday and Tuesday, Mike D’Antoni said that the guard will be in the Rockets’ opening-night rotation.

    MCW missed the final three preseason games with a sore knee, but is expected to be ready tonight against the Pelicans. Even with Marquese Chriss (sprained ankle) and Nene (right calf soreness) out, that could mean a nine-player rotation, if Carter-Williams and Gerald Green both play. A nine-player rotation is deeper than typical for D’Antoni, but he said he was fine with that. MCW had some strong preseason games and it will be interesting to see if he is able to hold any value with so many mouths to feed in Houston.

    Michael Carter-Williams (knee) is expected to play in Wednesday's season opener.

    Carter-Williams returned to a full practice on Monday and should be available to back up Chris Paul and James Harden. There's no fantasy impact here.
