Philadelphia 76ers point guard Markelle Fultz improving, out 2-3 weeks with shoulder injury

Official release

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz was examined and evaluated Sunday by Dr. Ben Kibler, Medical Director of the Shoulder Center of Kentucky at the Lexington Clinic, for the soreness and scapular muscle imbalance that he has been experiencing in his right shoulder.

The soreness is dissipating and the muscle balance is improving, and Fultz will continue with physiotherapy and begin progressing toward full basketball activities.

Fultz will be re-evaluated in approximately two to three weeks.

His return to gameplay will be determined by how the shoulder responds to progressive basketball training and practices in the interim.
