Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz threw out the first pitch at the Phillies game on Monday.

Prior to that, he answered some questions from Action News.

When asked about his ankle, Fultz replied, "I have been working out lately, getting strength back, doing rehab and everything like that. My ankle is doing a lot better. I'll be fine."

Last week, Fultz gave his prediction that the 76ers are headed to the playoffs. He stands by that.

"My confidence is high. It's nowhere near cockiness, it's just me having confidence. I believe in the team. I believe in what I can do, what the coaching staff can do. Everybody on the team's goal is to make it to the playoffs and everybody believes we can make it," Fultz said.

Though Fultz has not been a 76er for that long, he can see the promise in the players and staff.

"Just the talent level that was here before I even got here and just being around the coaching staff. Seeing their visions and what they can see and what they can draw up and what they see in the new players that just came in. We're all on the same page and we're going to work hard to get there," Fultz said.
