Markelle Fultz is working out, and shooting left-handed

2017 Las Vegas Summer League - Philadelphia 76ers v San Antonio Spurs

LAS VEGAS, NV - JULY 09: Markelle Fultz #7 of the Philadelphia 76ers rebounds basketballs for his teammates as they warm up before a 2017 Summer League game against the San Antonio Spurs at the Thomas & Mack Center on July 9, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fultz did not play because of a sprained ankle he suffered in a game on July 8.

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.
