Fultz (shoulder) will be re-evaluated next week, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Sixers will be checking on Fultz's progress with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in the near future. He's been away from the team thus far while recovering, but the expectation is that the sophomore will return at some point this season.
Fultz (shoulder) is expected to return at some point this season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Fultz's agent, Raymond Brothers, told Wojnarowski that Fultz has improved his range of motion while rehabbing over the last few weeks, and he's expected to return to game action later in the season. Fultz is still without any sort of firm timetable, and Brothers noted that the 2017 first overall pick wants to be at 100 percent before he rejoins the Sixers. GM Elton Brand confirmed that the team has fielded calls about potential trades involving Fultz, but for the time being it doesn't appear anything is imminent. "They want to see how this rehab process goes, and what he is when he returns to this team," Wojnarowski said.
Coach Brett Brown expects to know more about Fultz's (shoulder) recovery in a couple of weeks, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports. Fultz has been away from the team since early December, as he was diagnosed with a Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome -- a nerve-altering issue. The second-year guard will be around the team for the 76ers' Christmas Day game against the Celtics, but won't play. Fultz has yet to go through basketball activities, focusing on physical therapy. When asked about Fultz's situation, general manager Elton Brand noted that he couldn't say for a sure whether the 20-year-old will play again this season.
Fultz was diagnosed with Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome on Tuesday, an injury that impacts nerves between the neck and his right shoulder, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Fultz has been meeting with specialists for the past few weeks, and they've finally managed to make a diagnosis. This type of injury causes unusual movements and alters range of motion, which ultimately has been limiting Fultz's ability to shoot. However, TOS can be treated through physical therapy, which figures to be the next step. The 76ers are hopeful that Fultz will make a return in 3-to-6 weeks, but he's been ruled out indefinitely for now, per Wojnarowski.
Fultz (shoulder) will continue seeing specialists through early next week, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Fultz has met with specialists twice this week, and the process will continue into next week. There hasn't been word of any results at this point, so it remains unclear what the exact issue is and when we might be able to expect Fultz back on the court. He won't play Friday against the Wizards and it seems unlikely he'll play Sunday against the Grizzlies. Fultz should be tentatively questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, but it wouldn't be surprising if he was held out. That said, even if he's deemed healthy, the relationship between the Sixers and Fultz seems damaged. It's no guarantee that he'll remain a member of the team for the whole year and it's possible he's held out until a trade is made.
