Philadelphia 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams has been out since May after having surgery on his right shoulder, but he remains optimistic of returning to the team for this season on November 13.

According to ESPN, the Sixers could hold Carter-Williams a bit back. General manager Sam Hinkie has had the team in all-out tank mode since last season, and signs show he's going to do the same this year in order to attain another high NBA Draft pick.

The team already has No. 3 overall pick Joel Embiid likely to miss the entire 2014-15 season, so it shouldn't be a surprise Carter-Williams' return could be delayed. In addition, the team had Nerlens Noel sit out last year.

It will be interesting to see when this team will be ready to go to become a playoff-contender. For the sake of 76ers fans, hopefully it's next year.

Carter-Williams, who is entering his second year, is coming off his first season in the NBA where he won Rookie of the Year honors. The 6-foot-6 point guard out of Syracuse averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists and 6.2 assists last season with Philly.
