Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz's agent, Raymond Brothers, told ESPN that his client is progressing well in rehabilitation on his right shoulder and expects Fultz to return to the team this season.
"We want to make sure he's 100 percent and healthy when he does come back," Brothers told ESPN on Tuesday.
So far, Brothers said that Fultz has been regaining strength and mobility in a right shoulder that the agent believes will improve a jump shot form that has failed the 20187 NBA Draft's No. 1 overall pick thus far in the league.
Brothers said there's no timetable on a return for Fultz, other than he expects him to return during the regular season. Fultz rejoined the 76ers for their Christmas Day game in Boston on Tuesday and will soon return to Los Angeles where he's been working under the supervision of doctors and trainers since leaving the team three weeks ago.
