While speaking to reporters back on Feb. 8, Philadelphia 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo said there was a chance rookie point guard Markelle Fultz might not play again this season.
Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft, has been sidelined since Oct. 25 due to scapular muscle imbalance in his right shoulder.
The point guard was averaging 6.0 points while shooting 33.3 percent from the field and 50.0 percent from the free throw line before the team decided to shut him down.
Since returning from Kentucky where he was conducting his rehabilitation work, Fultz has looked more comfortable and confident in his shooting motion, but it doesn’t appear he will see the court anytime soon.
Via Sixers insider Jon Johnson:
Per team source, there is no plan for Markelle Fultz to return in the immediate future/next few games.
