Markelle Fultz (shoulder) is no longer experiencing soreness but the team will “gauge his readiness” in three weeks.
Cutting through the corporate speak, Fultz is out for at least three more weeks. Probably more than that considering they’re just looking for readiness and he’ll need to get his conditioning up, but it’s three weeks at minimum. We’re not going to see Fultz until the new year and the Sixers have no incentive to rush their top pick back to action even as they try to snatch a playoff spot. While Fultz wasn’t exactly tearing it up on the court this season, his injury has made him a complete non-factor in fantasy circles. Hopefully you steered clear on draft day.
