PHILADELPHIA (AP) Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams sat out the 76ers' game Saturday night against Denver, the second straight game he has missed because of a skin infection on of his right knee.

The rookie spent his third night in the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Carter-Williams is averaging 17.7 points and 7.3 assists and leads the NBA with 3.1 steals per game. He was honored Tuesday as the NBA Eastern Conference rookie of the month.
