76ers coach Brett Brown said the team would likely provide an update today on Markelle Fultz, who has been seeing an outside specialist amid the guard’s shooting woes.

As has become standard, the 76ers and Fultz apparently weren’t the same page.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

I’m not optimistic for a clear resolution next week, either. This is a messy situation that been dragging for about a year-and-a-half, maybe even before Philadelphia drafted Fultz No. 1 overall.

At least the 76ers have T.J. McConnell as backup point guard. I have no idea where Fultz goes from here, other than hoping further testing provides him with a clear plan.
