Markelle Fultz and his agent Raymond Brothers expect that Fultz can return and play for the Philadelphia 76ers this season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Fultz rejoined the team early in the week and traveled with them to Boston for their Christmas day game against the Boston Celtics. In the next few days, Fultz is returning to Los Angeles where he is rehabbing from his injury.

Brothers talked to ESPN about Markelle’s injury and said that Fultz has improved the condition of his shoulder. Fultz’s recovery process consists of gaining strength and mobility in his right shoulder. His agent believes that this recovery process will help Fultz to improve his shooting form which has failed him since he entered the league in 2017. Right now, Brothers’ focus is to get Fultz healthy and ready to return to the court.
“We want to make sure he’s 100 percent and healthy when he does come back.”
Earlier this month Fultz was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome on his right shoulder and was declared as out for an indefinite period of time. Fultz went to see various specialists on advice from Brothers to check what was going on with his shoulder. After Fultz’s injury was announced, Brothers went out to explain how the injury works.
“It 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.”
