The Philadelphia 76ers and point guard Michael Carter-Williams established Nov. 13 as the target date for Carter-Williams’ return, reported Thursday.

Carter-Williams, last season’s Rookie of the Year, had shoulder surgery in May.

He averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists and 6.2 rebounds for the 76ers last season.

Even if Carter-Williams is ready to play Nov. 13, it remains to be seen whether 76ers officials will put him in the lineup then.

Philadelphia’s first-round pick this year was Kansas center Joel Embiid, who might miss the entire season because of a foot injury.

Nerlens Noel, the 76ers’ first-round pick in 2013 who missed all of last season while recovering from a torn ACL, has missed the last three preseason games due to an upper respiratory infection.
