WHAT IS THAT

Philadelphia 76ers troubled guard Markelle Fultz is expected to miss three to six weeks to undergo rehabilitation on his right shoulder, league sources told ESPN on Tuesday.

He's been diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, his attorney/agent Raymond Brothers and the 76ers said Tuesday.

On the advice of Brothers, Fultz visited with approximately 10 specialists over the past week or so, consultations that resulted in their bringing this diagnosis back to the organization. 

Brothers told ESPN that thoracic outlet syndrome "affects nerves between the neck and shoulder resulting in abnormal functional movement and range of motion, thus severely limiting Markelle's ability to shoot a basketball."

There was a Sixers medical team member on each of the visits to the specialists, Brothers said. Fultz  has seen many specialists in the past year, beyond his care with the 76ers' training staff.

I don't know, it sure looked like a mental problem. 

I mean, take a look at that free throw.
