Report: 76'ers Markelle Fultz to see shoulder specialist - no play or practice until then
Something had to give on this saga. Markelle Fultz broken shot has been labeled alternately as an injury, the yips or a psychological issue. In previous articles I have supported the injury theory, and now Markelle Fultz may be headed to a shoulder specialist and will not play or practice until that is done.
At the direction of his attorney, Raymond Brothers, @MarkelleF is scheduled to see a shoulder specialist early next week. Per Brothers, Fultz will not participate in team practices or games until after the the specialist has had a chance to evaluate him.
Raymond Brothers, the attorney named in the tweet, is also the agent for Fultz. Look for updates. This Fultz/broken shot issue has been one of the most bizarre things I have witnessed in the NBA in decades. Markelle and Drew Hanlen, his shooting coach, parted ways a short while ago. I suspect some mishandling of Fultz and his issue by some yet-to-be-determined individual or organization. Expect some possible legal action in the near future, and a possible move for Fultz. He needs it.
