NBA Rookie Stock Watch: Can Anyone Topple an Injured Michael Carter-Williams?
Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

A foot injury limited Philadelphia 76ers rookie Michael Carter-Williams to just one game this past week, and it wasn't anything to write home about. That means the rest of the NBA's top rookies had a perfect opportunity to make a run at the king.

Victor Oladipo's ongoing learning experience with the Orlando Magic produced mixed results, while a pair of Boston Celtics rookies swapped positions this week. Could any of those three players have done enough to knock MCW from his pedestal?

Elsewhere in the rankings, a physical freak makes his debut, Anthony Bennett is still nowhere to be seen and Steven Adams insists on making me regret elevating him to the No. 3 spot last week.

Let's check out the movers and shakers in this week's rookie stock watch.
