Sixers GM: Markelle Fultz (shoulder) limited to shooting in paint

020918_MarkelleFultz_usat

Adding to the concern, Colangelo described Fultz's shooting range as "in the paint", though he said Fultz could still help the team upon returning, regardless of his shooting.

Colangelo said Fultz has had to re-learn to shoot the ball as a result of the injury. So far, it's been a brief cup of coffee in the National Basketball Association for the point guard, who has only played in four games this season.

In remarks that contradict the opinion expressed recently by coach Brett Brown, 76ers president Bryan Colangelo acknowledged Saturday (AEDT) that Fultz may be sidelined for the rest of the season.

It has now been almost four months since the No. 1 pick in last year's NBA Draft last took the court, and based on what Sixers president Bryan Colangelo told reporters Friday, he might not be back anytime soon.

This really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who watched Philadelphia 76ers rookie Markelle Fultz shoot a basketball in the past year or so.

Winter Olympics 2018: medal count results
ET with its largest-ever contingent - 225 athletes and 87 coaches donning red-and-white gear featuring the maple leaf. Over 17 days, more than 3,000 of the world's best athletes will compete in 102 medal events in 15 sports.

Markelle Fultz walks on stage with NBA commissioner Adam Silver after being drafted first overall by the Philadelphia 76ers during the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft at Barclays Center on June 22, 2017 in New York City. At just 19, Fultz could potentially shake off his shoulder troubles and emerge as a post-injury star like Embiid and Simmons.

Simmons missed his entire first season past year with a foot injury, while Embiid missed his first two seasons with his own foot troubles and only recently played the first set of back-to-back games in his career. Yeah, it don't get much more vague than that.

If the regular season ended today, the Philadelphia 76ers would be the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

But the longer this goes on, the more intense the spotlight will become.
