During the exit interview, Michael Carter-Williams said, "I love the guys on the team, I love the organization & Coach Cliff is great. I could definitely see myself here. I’m comfortable here & I can play my game. I’d love to come back.”
MCW proved to be a good bargain for the Magic and for really deep-league fantasy owners with 0.9 steals, 0.8 blocks, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists in just 18.9 minutes off the bench. Those aren't eye-popping numbers, but for a backup seeing minutes in the teens, that was plenty valuable. Along with retaining Nikola Vicevic, PG will be a point of emphasis for the Magic this offseason.

Michael Carter-Williams (nose) will play in Game 2 on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.
Williams took a hard hit from Kyle Lowry and his nose started bleeding a ton, so much that it was believed to have possibly been broken. This is good news for the Magic as Carter-Williams actually played really well for them in Game 1, finishing with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and two triples on 4-of-8 shooting in just 18 minutes.

Michael Carter-Williams (nose, face) was hit in the face and bleeding heavily from his nose.
Kyle Lowry came off of a Khem Birch screen, which could have been an illegal screen, and ended up smacking MCW in the nose. He was bleeding profusely, but did not get the foul call and was livid. Early reports are that MCW may have broken his nose, but we'll update his status when we learn more.

Michael Carter-Williams finished his regular season with eight points, four rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 22 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday.
Carter-Williams dealt with left knee issues early in the year, which delayed his Houston debut. He quickly fell out of favor there and was traded to the Bulls, who waived him almost immediately. Orlando came calling after Isaiah Briscoe tore his meniscus and MCW made the most of his 10-day contracts before signing with the Magic for the rest of the season. As a member of the Magic, he delivered 5.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.3 triples in 18.6 mpg. Carter-Williams was a top-200 value over those 12 contests, and though that’s a vast improvement over the top-350 numbers we’re still not all that excited about his long-term prospects. He might’ve saved his career, at least, and that’s certainly an accomplishment.

Michael Carter-Williams gave the Magic another strong performance off the bench on Friday, posting four points, six rebounds, six assists and a steal in 21 minutes of action.
Carter-Williams has looked surprisingly competent since the Magic picked him up, and he's immediately taken on the backup point guard job. We'll see how he holds up in the playoffs as teams can completely ignore him as a shooter, but it's hard to call his addition anything but a win for Orlando. He's right on the cusp of 12-team value over the last couple of weeks and is worth a look if you need assists, but keep expectations in check. D.J. Augustin put up 13 points, seven assists, two steals and a triple in the easy win.

Michael Carter-Williams has been signed by the Magic for the rest of the season.
He already has appeared in nine games with the Magic and continues to backup D.J. Augustin well whenever he needs a breather. There's no need to pick him up yet since he only has one good fantasy game since arriving in Orlando.

Michael Carter-Williams provided a spark with 15 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes in Monday's blowout win over the Sixers.
It was Carter-Williams' fourth game with the Magic, and it's a good reminder that he can put up some great stats if he get the minutes. However, he totaled just nine points, 14 rebounds and seven assists in his previous three games, so there's no need to pick him up just yet.

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.

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.

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 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 (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.
