Markelle Fultz continued his pregame workouts before the 76ers lost to the Indiana Pacers 101-98 Tuesday night.

The rookie looked smooth practicing with 76ers assistant and South Jersey native Bill Lange.

Fultz’s jumper look fluid. He also showed hints of the explosiveness he showed at the University of Washington last season.

The top pick in the NBA Draft hasn’t played since Oct. 9. The listed reason is a shoulder injury. But any fan who watched Fultz’s awkward outside shot earlier this season knows there’s probably more to Fultz’s extended absence that an injured shoulder.

With Fultz’s looking good before Tuesday’s game, the media asked 76ers coach Brett Brown if any decision has been made on whether Fultz will play this season?

Brown responded with one word.

“No,” he said.
