    Magic's Markelle Fultz: Timetable still unclear

    General manager John Hammond has "no idea" when Markelle Fultz will be able to play, Dan Feldman of NBC Sports reports. "We want to have patience with [Fultz] and get him ready and put him on the court when he can be most productive."Hammond also noted that Fultz will not play in summer league, but that the point guard is in good shape. It's possible fantasy owners will go into drafts next season still without knowing if Fultz will play at all. But there's still plenty of time until preseason begins, and we may be able to get a glimpse of him then.

    Magic's Markelle Fultz: Shifts rehab to Orlando

    Markelle Fultz will continue his rehab from thoracic outlet syndrome in Orlando after spending the last few months in the Los Angeles area, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.While this is a positive step for the 2017 No. 1 overall pick, there's still no indication that he's close to returning to practice, let alone game action, any time soon. Fultz is expected to be around the team and attend games and practices, however. Earlier this month, Orlando Magic president of basketball operations, Jeff Weltman, expressed optimism regarding Fultz's rehab, but he declined to offer any sort of timetable. "Markelle is doing very well," Weltman said. "He's in Los Angeles continuing his rehab. We have sent one of our performance staff to be out with him to try to understand what he's going through from the more scientific perspective, and I have been out there to spend some time with him and watched him work out. It's just a matter of understanding where he is and supporting him. But I can tell you confidently that he's making significant progress and he's feeling like he's in a very good place."

    Magic's Markelle Fultz: May not return this season

    Markelle Fultz (shoulder) may not return before the end of the season, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.Fultz was traded to Orlando on Thursday in exchange for Jonathon Simmons and a pair of picks, and it sounds like the Orlando Magic -- who are slowly drifting further from playoff contention -- will exercise patience with the youngster as he works his way back from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Once healthy, the second-year guard out of Washington is a strong candidate to step in as the team's starting point guard.

    Magic's Markelle Fultz: Traded to Orlando

    Markelle Fultz has been traded to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Jonathan Simmons, the Thunder's top-20 protected first-round pick and a second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.Philadelphia management decided it was not in a position to wait on Fultz's recovery, and the Sixers will ultimately acquire a win-now piece in Jonathan Simmons and some late draft picks. Orlando, on the other hand, has been in need of a point guard with upside, and the organization is prepared to take the risk with Fultz. It still remains unclear when he'll be able to return to the floor. When he does, it's possible he usurps D.J. Augustin as a starter.

    76ers' Markelle Fultz: Still no timetable

    Markelle Fultz (shoulder) has returned to Philadelphia to continue his rehab, but he remains without a timetable, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.The mystery surrounding Fultz has mostly disappeared from the public spotlight, but the 2017 No. 1 overall pick will be in attendance at Saturday's game against the Thunder. The fact that he's rejoined the team seems like a step in the right direction, but it's unclear when, or if, he'll be back on the court for the Sixers -- or another team -- this season.

    Markelle 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.

    76ers' Markelle Fultz: No update on return timeline

    Coach Brett Brown expects to know more about Markelle 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.

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.

    76ers' Markelle Fultz: Diagnosed with nerve-altering issue

    Markelle 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 Philadelphia 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.

    76ers' Markelle Fultz: Meeting with more specialists

    Markelle 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.
