Markelle Fultz said that his shoulder is “getting close” to 100 percent.
This is obviously great news for Fultz owners. He shot horribly during the preseason and reportedly changed his shot but hopefully the shoulder is the main cause for his shooting woes. He only played 18 minutes in Wednesday’s season opener and put up 10 points, three rebounds, one assist and one block. Both Markelle and coach Brett Brown were pleased with his performance, Brown stating that “he looked really good” and that he liked the way he could change directions so fluidly. Fultz will likely be eased into big minutes, but yesterday was a good start.
