Markelle Fultz made his much-anticipated return to the Philadelphia 76ers tonight. He hadn't played since October 23.

Fultz, who has been out of action with a mysterious shoulder injury, performed pretty well in his first game back. He scored 10 points, dished out eight assists and grabbed four rebounds in 14 minutes of action.

Fultz shot 5-of-13 from the field, including this nice pull-up jumper late in the game.

After the game, Fultz was of course asked about his shoulder. They were questions that had to be asked, but Fultz apparently didn't want to answer them. According to reporters, he ignored any queries about the shoulder.

It is understandable that Fultz doesn't want to talk about whatever he's gone through, but he's going to keep getting asked about it. He'll have to answer at some point.

For now, it is great to see the rookie back on the court.
