After leaving Tuesday night's come-from-behind win over the Sacramento Kings with a hamstring injury, Mavericks stating point guard Jameer Nelson said that he expects to play tonight against the 76ers.
As for the Sixers, it will be the season debut of their young point guard Michael Carter-Williams. MCW underwent surgery on his right shoulder prior to the season. His minutes are expected to be limited.
Nerlens Noel will also suit up against Dallas tonight. He was questionable leading up to today after missing Sunday's game against the Raptors with a sprained left ankle.
Tonight will be the first time that Carter-Williams and Noel play in the NBA together.
