76ers G Out Indefinitely With Thoracic Irritation


Philadelphia 76ers guard, Markelle Fultz, was yesterday ruled out for 3-6 weeks due to an injury that that was restricting motion in his shoulder and elbow. "There's no way you're the No 1 pick in the world and all of a sudden you aren't able to consistently raise your arms to shoot". Even with a solution, their muddled past with Fultz only gets worse, as a fan correctly diagnosed the point guard only to see his account and work deleted. The team would only say that Fultz is out indefinitely and will begin physical therapy immediately.

This story is long but certainly worth the read.

"Markelle has been diagnosed with neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome, a physical injury", Raymond Brothers, Fultz's agent, said in a statement to ESPN.

Brothers informed the Sixers on November 21 that Fultz would seek further opinions on his shoulder before a return to the court - a decision that the organization has left to Fultz and his management team.

Fultz struggled again to start the year - most notably with his shot - and was shut down again so doctors could figure out what was wrong. The former No. 1 overall pick appeared in 19 games this season and is shooting just under 42 percent from the field and an abysmal 28.6 percent from three-point range. Fultz lost his starting spot in the rotation when the Sixers traded for Jimmy Butler. Therefore, severely limiting Fultz's ability to shoot a basketball.
