So is the jumper fixed?

Remember earlier this summer when Drew Hanlen said the reworking of a jumper is a three-month process, during which time a player shouldn’t be taking any shots outside of the workouts? No shootarounds, no pickup games, no scrimmages. Nothing.

Well, guess who’s scrimmaging?

Courtesy of a five-second video from Drew Hanlen, we witnessed former first overall pick Markelle Fultz out on the court alongside Bradley Beal, Jayson Tatum, and a host of other NBA players. Given what Hanlen said previously, the logical conclusion is that Fultz’s jumper is fixed and all parties involved are confident that it won’t be disrupted by his being thrown back into 5-on-5 action.

What do you think, Sixers fans? Is the long nightmare finally over? Will we get to see Markelle hesi-pull-up-jimbo-ing on the court sooner rather than later? Tune in next week for another exciting episode of As the Fultz Turns.
