Markelle Fultz diagnosed with nerve injury that 'severely' limits ability to shoot

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

Sixers guard Markelle Fultz is out indefinitely following a diagnoses of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

TOS affects nerves between the neck and shoulder resulting in abnormal functional movement and range of motion, thus severely limiting Markelle's ability to shoot a basketball.

It would appear Markelle Fultz has a nerve condition after all. The Sixers said the specialists have identified a compression or irritation in the area between the lower neck and upper chest. Fultz's inability to shoot consistently, and various shooting forms, has been one of the biggest mysteries in Philadelphia sports history.

Ever since he was drafted No. 1 overall, Fultz has dealt with issues.

"The Sixers are calling Fultz out "indefinitely" but there's optimism that he can return within an approximate range of three to six weeks, league sources tell ESPN", Wojnarowski tweeted.

In a follow-up tweet, Wojnarowski mentioned that the syndrome effecting Fultz is treatable with physical therapy.

Fultz has missed Philadelphia's past six games and hasn't played since November 19.

On Nov. 20, Fultz's agent announced he would remove himself from team activities until he received further medical evaluation on his shoulder. In 15 starts and 19 appearances, Fultz is averaging just 8.2 points per game while attempting only 14 3-pointers all year.
