Three games into the season he has yet to shoot a jumper.

Either he should be in the d league for a few months learning to shoot, or he should dnp-cd. If he's playing injured, the team has a lot of questopns as to why trainers allow an injured player to play

A phenomenon known as the yips. He has completely lost all confidence in his ability to shoot the basketball.

One of his free throws last night.

Injuries don't cause form like that.

Actually they do. He is trying to lessen the impact on his shoulders, that is why he is using a shooting motion that uses the wrist more to push the ball out.

Maybe, but in viewing the video, I would say [if anything] it looks like he has a problem with his wrist and not his shoulder as there actually is quite a bit of arm/shoulder motion. I would assume he would try more of a 'wrist flip', just trying to get the shot at the hoop, if it were really his shoulder.

I really don't understand why the Sixers coaching staff is allowing him to play right now.  If his shoulder is that much of a problem then they need to sit him for the time being.  The coaches shouldn't allow him tinker with ANYTHING shot related in his rookie year.  It's important for Fultz to experience early success doing some of the same things that made him a great scorer in college.  If Fultz continues to obsess with his shot then he will lack growth in other aspects of his game.

Fultz screwed up his shooting form before he showed up to training camp.  Coach Brown was  quite surprised about it.  The shoulder injury claim started after he had adjusted his shot and people started talking about how bad it was.  The Sixers wouldn't be playing him if they thought the shoulder was a significant concern.  I think bringing him off the bench in limited minutes is the best approach.  They need to get him used to NBA play while working on his shot during practice.

Poor kid. He needs to be shut down for a little bit with a personal coach to get his shot back. But that is hard to do because the season already started. He needs confidence I mean come on his free throw shooting is a mess.

This is just strange. The sixers have 0 issue shutting guys down being overly cautious. If he's hurt **** are they doing? if he's not hurt **** happened?

Maybe they are afraid of the backlash they would get if yet another 76ers #1 pick missed their rookie season due to injury.

This was yesterday and really bad. His FT was wide left and missed the rim completely.

That never stopped them before plus there is a lot of guys for fans to be excited about in Philly. If he's hurt why are they pushing him out there?

If he starts shooting jumpers it's not like he'll hit them, either. I foresee a thread a couple weeks from now about how he has yet to make a jumper. So glad we have Tatum.
