Videos: Markelle Fultz Still Can't Shoot

The No. 1 overall pick is still having big problems with his jump shot.

Markelle Fultz continues to work on his jumper at practice. It doesn't appear to be improving much.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft has been out since the beginning of the season with an injury. He seems to be approaching full health, but it's not likely that he'll return to the court anytime soon.

Sixers head coach Brett Brown said in mid-January that Fultz won't be coming back until he can "shoot a basketball." That's a real quote.

"I think what he needs to be is able to shoot a basketball. I don’t know what percent we’re going to apply that comment, but he needs to feel he can go and shoot a basketball. To just render it that the free throw is pretty good, and it is, and to only go that far without talking about some of the other pieces, is not what we are looking at, and I know he isn’t looking at that," Brown said.

Videos of Fultz' jump shot continue to surface on social media. We're not sure why the Sixers are allowing Fultz to practice in front of reporters, but it's happening.

Zack Rosenblatt, who covers the Sixers for NJ.com, tweeted out some videos of Fultz shooting at practice this morning. The jumper is still broken.

This is getting pretty depressing to watch. Fultz wasn't a great shooter in college, but he was more than capable.

The Sixers, meanwhile, are battling for a playoff spot. Philadelphia is 25-25 and No. 8 in the Eastern Conference.

Philly is set to take on the John Wall-less Wizards at home tonight. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. E.T. on TNT.
