76ers guard Markelle Fultz remains out with a shoulder injury that deformed his free throws and eliminated his jumper.

The No. 1 pick is back on the court – and raising eyebrows, though not his right shoulder.

Paul Hudrick of NBC Sports Philadelphia:

I’m guessing Fultz is just shooting in a way that allows him to run these drills without stressing his shoulder, which he should be resting.

But this saga has been so strange, I can’t rule out Fultz pulling a Tristan Thompson and switching his shooting hand. That unlikely possibility would raise a huge alarm about Fultz.

Hopefully, this isn’t a significant development in his recovery.

The 76ers will also be without Joel Embiid against the Jazz tomorrow. Hudrick:

Embiid probably isn’t happy, but Philadelphia is right to be careful.
