Report: Markelle Fultz’s shoulder injury fading, return anticipated soon


Philadelphia 76ers point guard and No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz could be back on the court soon.

That’s according to the team, who told The Athletic’s Mike O’Connor on Thursday that Fultz’s shoulder injury woes are coming to an end.

Fultz has been sidelined with an aching shoulder since late October. The Washington product hasn’t played in a game since the team’s Oct. 23 win over the Detroit Pistons, 97-86.

Philadelphia has been on a tear in Fultz’s absence, going 12-7 in that time.

Fultz was previously marked as out indefinitely by the team. Nice to hear there’s some hope for his return, possibly before the new year.
