Markelle Fultz had eight points, four rebounds and three assists in just 19 minutes on Wednesday, making 2-of-9 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs.
The absence of Michael Carter-Williams (left foot) left some extra backcourt minutes available, but Fultz's conditioning is still a work in progress. He missed workout time in the bubble to attend to a personal matter and coach Steve Clifford said recently, "Certainly he’s not in the type of shape that he was before [the hiatus]." He's been a half-step slow on some possessions and it doesn't sound like he'll start or play 30+ minutes in the immediate future, so DFS managers should keep expectations in check even with MCW on the sidelines.
