76ers guard Markelle Fultz returned to the team on Christmas Day in Boston after spending three weeks in Los Angeles rehabbing his right shoulder. He’s been rehabbing the shoulder since being diagnosed earlier this season with a neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome.
Fultz is still not ready yet to play in a game and has no timetable for a return to the lineup, but his agent expects for the former first round pick to return to the Sixers lineup today.
Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz’s agent, Raymond Brothers, told ESPN that his client is progressing well in rehabilitation on his right shoulder and that he expects Fultz to return to the team this season.
“We want to make sure he’s 100 percent and healthy when he does come back,” Brothers told ESPN on Tuesday.
When Fultz returns to the lineup, he might have less playing time than he did prior to being diagnosed with his shoulder injury. Although if he is able to return to the form that earned him a first round pick he should be able to work his way back into more playing time.
