Markelle Fultz will come off the bench in the Sixers' season opener, according to coach Brett Brown.
Brown cited the fact that Fultz didn't play much this preseason due to a sore right knee and right shoulder, the latter of which has impacted his shooting. Philly also wants more shooting on the court to create space for Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, and it looks like veteran PG Jerryd Bayless will get the nod on opening night. Fultz's time will come sooner than later, but patience is required. Oct 15 - 12:00 PM

Jerryd Bayless will likely be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Wizards.

The 76ers will initially be bringing Markelle Fultz off the bench as he recovers from his shoulder issues, so it looks like Philly will be going with a starting five featuring Ben Simmons, Bayless, J.J. Redick, Robert Covington and Joel Embiid on opening night with Fultz and Dario Saric working with the second unit. Bayless probably won't be receiving many minutes as a starter, though, so he's not a great target in most settings.

Brett Brown said he sees Robert Covington "starting and ending" games for the 76ers this season.

The 76ers will likely be rolling out a starting five of Markelle Fultz, J.J. Redick, Covington, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid (knee) when the 2017-18 season begins, with Dario Saric being used in a sixth man type role. Covington should be able to score at a more efficient rate this season with the improved offense around him, and it sounds like he'll still be a significant part of the rotation, so he could turn out to be one of the better value picks towards the middle rounds on draft day.

Ben Simmons (right foot surgery) said during ESPN's telecast on Sunday that he's resumed playing 5-on-5.

He also noted that coach Brett Brown "wants to start [Simmons] at the point," but that he and rookie Markelle Fultz should each find their role depending on the situation. Simmons is expected to be ready for opening night but Brown recently said it would be "very ambitious" to play him without a minute-limit, which dents his fantasy appeal.
