76ers guard Markelle Fultz has nerve injury in neck, shoulder

For Fultz, it means he finally - in theory - has the correct diagnosis and a gameplan to hopefully return to being able to shoot a basketball.

Markelle has been diagnosed with neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome, a physical injury.

The Philadelphia 76ers point guard was diagnosed with neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome, according to his agent, who says the nerve injury affected Fultz's shooting.

Fultz, 20, has seen many specialists in the past year, beyond his care with the 76ers' training staff. Fultz will being undergoing physical therapy "immediately" and there is no timetable for his return. It has also been one of the major stories in the NBA since he was drafted No. 1 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft.

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

Fultz, the 2017 #1 overall pick by the Sixers, missed most of his rookie season with a shoulder injury and his struggles shooting the ball have been well documented over the course of his young National Basketball Association career.

"Fultz's attorney and agent, Raymond Brothers, has strong confidence that this diagnosis and rehab will address Fultz's shooting issues", Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported.

Fultz has missed Philadelphia's past six games and hasn't played since November 19. Fultz seemed to think it was the former, while the team seemed to think it was the latter.

Fultz has lost the ability to carry out and follow through on long jump shots, and there's been internal and external debate about how much of this perplexing circumstance is physical vs. mental.
