• Markelle Fultz
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Sixers coach Brett Brown said Markelle Fultz will act as the team's backup point guard on Thursday night.

    Fultz only saw five minutes of action in the previous game and none were in the second half. The Heat made great adjustments that gave the Sixers fits on offense and Fultz was not helping turn that around with his current inability to shoot. Ben Simmons played a game-high 39 minutes while Marco Belinelli got 30 minutes off the bench as Brown relied on shooters spacing the floor for Simmons. Fultz's minutes could be as low as five minutes or as high as in the 20s – it all depends on game flow and what Brown wants to do with the young guard.
