Sixers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams was diagnosed with an infection in his right knee, head coach Brett Brown announced on Saturday.

After experiencing soreness in the knee following Sunday's game in Detroit, Carter-Williams did not make the Sixers' recent road trip to Charlotte.

The former Syracuse Orange star has spent three nights at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania undergoing treatment for the infection which he believes he contracted after knocking knees with a Pistons player.'
