Brett Brown said he hopes Markelle Fultz will play in the 2018 Summer League.
Fultz told reporters on Thursday that he would be "open" to playing in Las Vegas. It sure seems like a no-brainer for all involved. Fultz was limited to just 14 games in his rookie season due to a shoulder injury that impacted his shot and his confidence. Having the opportunity to play against NBA-level competition without the pressure that comes along with regular-season contests would be seemingly ideal for Fultz's growth and development.

When asked about Markelle Fultz picking up three straight DNPs, coach Brett Brown said his point guard rotation is not etched in stone.

"To say he’s dead and buried, that’s not true," Brown said. "But I got a decision to make, and I’ve made a decision." The 76ers will continue to roll with T.J. McConnell as the backup for now, but he averaged just 9.3 minutes in the three games that Fultz didn't play.
May 2 - 9:44 AM

Markelle Fultz did not score with one rebound and one assist in four minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

He did get some run next to Joel Embiid, which is rare because those two only played 31 minutes together in their careers before tonight. However, he was lost on defense, so coach Brett Brown couldn't go back to him.

Markelle Fultz will be the backup point guard on Thursday for Game 3.

Fultz played just five minutes in Game 2 after playing 14 minutes in Game 1, but coach Brett Brown believes the rookie will have learned from the physicality of the other night. For now, expect Fultz to see minutes in the teens unless he has the hot hand.
Apr 19 - 9:44 AM

Markelle Fultz became the youngest player in NBA history to triple-double on Wednesday, scoring 13 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one block.

Fultz edges out Lonzo Ball as the youngest player with a trip-dub and he continues to impress off the bench for the surging Sixers. Despite near-constant fretting about Fultz's jumper and shoulder injury this season, he's looked great since returning to action on Mar. 26. He's helped the Sixers sustain their incredible 16-game win streak, despite the recent absence of Joel Embiid, and the future is now for this rebuilt squad. Trust the Process, indeed.

Coach Brett Brown said that Markelle Fultz would "probably" start at point guard if Ben Simmons (illness) is unable to play Tuesday vs. Atlanta.

Simmons was unable to participate in Tuesday morning's shootaround due to gastroenteritis and spent Tuesday morning at the team hotel getting fluids. Fultz would be an intriguing DFS option if Simmons is ruled out; however, he would likely split minutes with T.J. McConnell.
Apr 10 - 1:29 PM

Markelle Fultz scored 10 points with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 12 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

The strides in transition just jump off on tape, and Fultz even hit a contested jumper. He's making quite an impact in the second unit and he'll be out there in the playoffs. Fultz is going to be a mystery next year, but he has serious talent.
Apr 6 - 10:26 PM

Markelle Fultz scored 10 points with one rebound and two steals in 19 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

His crazy +40.5 net rating over the last two took a hit with his -2 in plus-minus today. Fultz had some nice shooting touch in this game and he's slowly rounding into form. He is Ben Simmons' backup, so he's not the strongest add until he gets more minutes next to him.
Mar 30 - 10:47 PM

Markelle Fultz said on Wednesday that he felt like he "had more rhythm" in his second game.

"I felt like when I came in, I contributed on both ends of the floor, and that’s all I could ask for," Fultz said. Coach Brett Brown is using Fultz as a straight backup PG to Ben Simmons right now, and that may not change. Defense has been the key for Fultz with a terrific 77.0 defensive rating in those last two, and he's QB'd his offense to a 117.5 offensive rating for a +40.5 net rating. Sure, he has shooting woes, but his defense and his 15:1 assist:turnover ratio has made this a terrific start to his return.
Mar 29 - 2:27 PM

Markelle Fultz scored three points with five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in 14 minutes against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He's instant excitement for the Wells Fargo Center crowd with plenty of "Fultz" chants since his return. The No. 1 pick been a play-maker in both of his games with 15 dimes in just 28 minutes ,and he's making an impact on defense. He's going to struggled scoring efficiently and any made free throw is a win for the rookie -- he went 1-of-2 tonight. He could be a decent counting stat guy in deep leagues, but it's still tough to rely on a guy that's played just 14 minutes per game and is backing up a minutes monster in Ben Simmons.
Mar 28 - 10:00 PM

Markelle Fultz made his long-awaited return in Monday's 123-104 win over the Nuggets with 10 points, eight assists, four rebounds and one turnover in 14 minutes on 5-of-13 shots.

He had three jumpers blocked and air-balled another, but you could tell that his form was much better and he did hit a pair of jumpers in garbage time. Fultz forced the issue a bit too much during his first stint, but he eventually calmed down and made some really good passes and showed flashes of the player Philly expected when they traded up to take him at No. 1. All in all, this was an encouraging night after several months of the sidelines. The 76ers are going to keep integrating him slowly, but if you need a boost in assists then Fultz is worth a look with three more games on the schedule.
Mar 26 - 9:34 PM

Markelle Fultz (shoulder) will play Monday vs. the Nuggets.

Fultz reportedly made the decision to finally get back out there tonight, and he'll be operating as Ben Simmons' backup. He'll likely be very limited following a lengthy layoff, and he wasn't playing all that well prior to going down, so this is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues.
Mar 26 - 5:31 PM

Markelle Fultz (shoulder) will not play on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

Fultz is reportedly nearing a return, and the No. 1 pick apparently has the final say if he plays this season. With just 10 games left, Fultz is running out of time and likely isn't going to return in time to make an impact in the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 26 - 10:24 AM

Markelle Fultz (shoulder) will have the final say if he plays this season according to coach Brown.

"It’s just something that when Markelle Fultz feels like he can go, like he really feels good about himself and his health, the shoulder, everything," Brown said. "He knows he’s got a coaching staff and a team that will welcome him in when he says go." His shot has been looking better in pre-game warmups, and while there have been some rumors that he's close to a return, we haven't heard anything about a potential return date.
Mar 25 - 9:57 AM

Markelle Fultz (right shoulder rehabilitation) is listed as out for Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

There's still no return date in sight, and coach Brett Brown recently said that the 76ers will be making a decision as to whether or not Fultz will play again this season. The 76ers have handled this situation very poorly with so many unanswered questions.
