  • Markelle Fultz - G - Orlando Magic

    Orlando's President Jeff Weltman says that he is "more excited" about Markelle Fultz now than he was at the trade deadline.

    At this time, there is no reason for Orlando to be anything other than positive about the former No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft. With an entire offseason ahead of him in a city other than Philadelphia, perhaps Fultz can finally turn it around and find his shot. The Magic are a team that is looking towards the future and Fultz has an opportunity to become the starting point guard of that future. The team will not rush him back but it does seem like they expect more from him next season.

  • Markelle Fultz - G - Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz finished his second season on the shelf, this time dealing with thoracic outliet syndrome.

    Fultz has joined his teammates in Orlando but we have no idea of when he'll return to the court. He's played in 35 games through the first two years of his career and we still don't have a sense of what exactly he can bring to the table because of constant, strange injuries. Getting out of Philly and their ball-dominant stars should do Fultz plenty of good in the long-term, but we'll need to see that he looks healthy before getting too heavily invested for fantasy purposes. The fact that he increased his free throw percentage from .476 to .578 is a silver lining, though it's a drop in the bucket considering his top-290/300 value (per-game, 8/9-cat). There's lots of talent here but Fultz hasn't been able to show us much just yet.

  • Markelle Fultz - G - Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz (thoracic outlet syndrome) has joined his teammates in Orlando as he continues his rehab.

    Fultz, the former number one overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft, isn't expected to practice with the team, but he will attend practices and games, as he assimilates himself to the rest of the team. Fultz is still a long ways away from returning to the court, but this is a step in the right direction and a feel-good story for Fultz.

  • Markelle Fultz - G - Orlando Magic

    Magic coach Steve Clifford said that Markelle Fultz (thoracic outlet syndrome) likely will not join the Magic on the court this year.

    “I don’t think so,” Clifford said. “He’s still actually rehabbing his shoulder.” Fultz has been out of the lineup since November 19th, and after eventually getting diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, he has been doing rehab ever since. Clifford said he did not know enough about the injury to comment specifically on his progress, but added that he was treating it with physical therapy and it is something he will have to be diligent about moving forward with his career. The Magic are being smart here by not throwing him out on the floor in the middle of a playoff race that is not likely to help the young guard rebuild his confidence. Fultz is still a strong hold in dynasty formats and once he finally gets healthy, we should be able to see more of him on the court with the Magic next season.

  • Markelle Fultz - G - Orlando Magic

    At his introductory press conference on Thursday, Markelle Fultz (thoracic outlet syndrome) said that there's no timeline for his return.

    Essentially, Fultz isn't in a hurry to get on the court if it means he's further jeopardizing his long-term health. The move to Orlando should be good for him, and the Magic may have been able to find their point guard solution at a deep discount. He'll be an intriguing target next season as things stand now but Fultz can be left alone in re-draft formats for this year.
