Sixers fans, you've got your wish.
Markelle Fultz is playing.
The 2017 No. 1 overall pick will return Monday against the Nuggets at the Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m./NBCSP). Because of a shoulder injury, the 19-year-old rookie has not played in a game since Oct. 23, the fourth of the season.
"I'm so proud of him, the people around him have done great things," an emotional Brett Brown said pregame. "I give that kid credit. He will be with us tonight."
