Fultz, due to the addition of Jimmy Butler, will come off the bench for the foreseeable future, Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post reports.
Fultz has started all 15 games this season in an attempt by coach Brett Brown to get him comfortable within the offense after missing 68 games during his rookie year. The addition of Butler changes the Sixers' on-court dynamics, so coach Brown will opt to bring Fultz off the bench as a ballhandler, rather than try to mesh him, Butler and Ben Simmons into the starting lineup. Despite losing his starting role, Fultz could still continue to see 24.3 minutes per game. In that time, he's averaged 9.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.1 steals on 41.2 percent shooting.
Fultz totaled seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 FT), four assists, four steals, and two rebounds in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 100-94 win over the Pacers.
Fultz swiped a career high steal total while producing a well-rounded stat line. 76ers coach Brett Brown continues to mostly stagger the minutes of Fultz and Simmons in order to allow them to play with the ball in their hands more when they're on the court, which seems to be paying dividends for both. Fantasy owners will have to live with Fultz's inconsistencies for now, though he does appear to be growing more comfortable with each passing game.
Fultz totaled 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 21 minutes during Thursday's 122-113 victory over the Clippers.
Fultz played just 21 minutes Thursday but was able to produce arguably his best game of the season so far. He came within one rebound of a double-double and appears to gain more confidence with each and every game. He is still not really in the standard league conversation due mainly to his lack of playing time. If he can work his way up to more than 26 minutes per night, things might change.
Fultz tallied 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Saturday's 105-103 victory over Charlotte.
Once again, Fultz did most of his damage in the first half while seeing limited run during the second. The rotation remains a bit of a mystery but does appear locked in for the time being. Fultz is beginning to appear a little more comfortable running the offense and is looking for his shot a bit more. As it currently stands, Fultz is more of a deep league option but the upside is certainly there should he work his way into more playing time as the season progresses.
Fultz finished with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, and one block in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 133-132 overtime loss to the Pistons.
Fultz drew the start at point guard in place of Ben Simmons (back), but ultimately he was benched for T.J. McConnell and earned a season-low minute total despite this being by far the sophomore's best game of the young season. Fultz was feeling it in the first half, even knocking down a three, his second in five attempts through the first four contests of 2018-19. However, for whatever reason, coach Brett Brown hasn't stuck with Fultz in the second halves of games, excluding last Thursday's blowout win versus the Bulls. If Simmons remains sidelined during Wednesday's tilt with the Bucks, Fultz could be in line to draw another start and spend more time with the ball in his hands than usual, though it's unclear how long Brown will keep the 20-year-old guard on the court.
