Markelle Fultz will be out for an extended time after his latest diagnoses.
Fultz has been at the center of a lot of criticism after not meeting some fans expectations. It seems that the 20-year-old has solid reason on why his shoot is looked off.
Fultz agent Raymond Brothers spoke to ESPN, about Fultz being diagnosed with Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.
Agent Raymond Brothers: “Markelle (Fultz) has been diagnosed with Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, (TOS), a physical injury.
TOS affects nerves between the neck and shoulder resulting in abnormal functional movement and range of motion, thus severely shoot a basketball…”

“People were saying it was a mental problem and it is not,” Brothers told ESPN on Tuesday night. “There’s no way you’re the No. 1 pick in the world and all of a sudden you aren’t able to consistently raise your arms to shoot a basketball. Something is physically wrong. Now we have the answer to that problem.”
Fultz is expected to miss 6 to 8 weeks with rehab.
