Michael Carter-Williams had offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Recently, the Rookie of the Year caught up with 97.5 The Fanatic FM to talk about his rehab on his shoulder:
Carter-Williams has reached the point in his shoulder rehabilitation where he can begin shooting again. Over the next two months, he’ll work to bring himself back to 100% before training camp begins. But the 6’6” point guard will also spend that time polishing the areas of his game that he feels could use improvement.
“I did a lot of good things out there, and I learned a lot,” he said of his rookie campaign. “But definitely just my three-point shot, getting a little bit stronger, and my pull-up shot. Those are the three things that I’m really working on this offseason to expand my game and make the game easier on myself.”
It’s good to hear that MCW’s rehab is going as scheduled and that he’s able to start shooting the basketball. That’s arguably his biggest weakness in his game and the Philadelphia faithful are hoping he can rework his jumper over the course of a long offseason.
