76ers' Markelle Fultz diagnosed with nerve condition

Markelle Fultz injury update: Sixers guard out indefinitely due to Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, a neck and shoulder injury

And this time, it actually may explain a lot.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz has been diagnosed with a nerve condition and will be sidelined indefinitely as he undergoes physical therapy, the team announced Tuesday. In 19 games this season, Fultz has shot 41.9 percent from the field, 28.6 percent (4-for-14) from 3-point range and 56.8 percent from the foul line while averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists.

The news is eye-opening, to put it lightly.

Falcons’ free-fall continues as offense shut down in loss
Beasley punctuated the score by slam dunking the ball over the goalpost, thus incurring an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. I don't get the sense that he's like, 'I've got to get out there, even if I'm on my death bed.' It doesn't feel like that.

"Fultz will begin his physical therapy immediately, is out indefinitely, and further updates will be provided as appropriate". This latest diagnosis appears to be the result of this evaluation, and is hopefully for Fultz and the 76ers alike a turning point in his career, allowing him to recover from an issue that has plagued him since he first entered the National Basketball Association.

Philadelphia 76ers second-year point guard Markelle Fultz could return within an approximate range of three to six weeks from his shoulder injury, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. It has also been one of the major stories in the NBA since he was drafted No. 1 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft. Although the chances of Fultz ever turning into a contributing member of the Sixers seem extremely thin, there is still an outside chance the team could trade him for something of value as opposed to just releasing him this offseason.
