SIXERS FULTZ CAN’T FOLLOW THROUGH ON SHOTS: WHAT’S NEXT?

By Michael Donovan

Here’s your daily Markelle Fultz update for Nov. 27, 2018″

The second-year guard has reportedly lost the ability to follow through on long jump shots.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Fultz’s issue sparked plenty of debate on whether the problem is physical or mental. However, many in the Sixers organization believe it’s mental.

Fultz is meeting with multiple shoulder specialists in New York this week to get an opinion about his situation. The former No. 1 overall pick won’t participate in the Sixers’ practices or games until the specialist has had the opportunity to evaluate him.

In 19 games for the Sixers this season, Fultz is averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists while shooting 41.9 percent from the field, 28.6 percent from beyond the arc and 56.8 percent from the free-throw line. He still has a nasty hitch in his jump shot and his free-throw routine is just as ugly.

The Sixers want to move on from the Fultz saga which began last season. However, the guard really doesn’t have any trade value in the league.
