When will Markelle Fultz play again for the 76ers?

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown: When he can shoot.

That day doesn’t appear any closer.

Jon Johnson of 94WIP:

When Brown gave his infamous “I think what he needs to be is able to shoot a basketball” answer, the coach also said Fultz’s free throws looked good. The issue was longer shots.

Well, these free throws do not look good. Not at all.

Why do the 76ers keep having Fultz shooting in front of media? If his confidence is shot (pun intended), these publicly scrutinized videos won’t help. Maybe he shoots better behind closed doors and testing himself with outsiders observing is his current step? That’s probably the most favorable plausible answer.

But, from what we can see, this situation keeps devolving.
