When the 76ers announced Markelle Fultz was out indefinitely, people leaked he’d miss just 3-6 weeks.

That was four weeks ago.

Keith Pompey of The Inquirer:

Markelle Fultz will be reevaluated early next week for thoracic outlet syndrome, according to multiple sources.

Fultz has yet to resume basketball activities. He would need to get back in shape, and perhaps, show improvement on his shot, before playing in a game.

I’d be shocked if this next evaluation leads to Fultz playing soon. His problems run deep. I just don’t see time without basketball activity getting him much closer. He missed nearly all of last season and still had the same shooting problems when he finally got back on the court.

But his agent is still talking about Fultz returning this season. So, steps in that ostensible process must be taken – like the upcoming reevaluation.
