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, 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."

Fultz was traded to Orlando on Thursday in exchange for Jonathon Simmons and a pair of picks, and it sounds like the 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.
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.

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 if, or when, he'll be back on the court for the Sixers -- or another team -- this season.
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.
