Raymond Brothers Rumors
Brothers also signed Danuel House, a guard/forward, who plays for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA G League.
.“I think we have been transparent,” Colangelo said. “I don’t know what prompted the comment by the agent to the report last night. We did have a communication about it after that. But again, there’s a lot of things that go into the noise that’s out there. Again, we are trying to do the best for Markelle and by Markelle to put him in a position to succeed.”
The agent for Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz changed his explanation Tuesday night on the treatment the No. 1 overall pick has received on his right shoulder, revising his earlier statement that fluid was drained from it during the preseason.
“He had a cortisone shot on Oct. 5, which means fluid was put into his shoulder — not taken out,” agent Raymond Brothers told ESPN on Tuesday night. “My intention earlier was to let people know that he’s been experiencing discomfort. We will continue to work with (Sixers general manager) Bryan Colangelo and the medical staff.”
Cortisone shots are used to relieve pain and inflammation. Sixers officials confirmed to ESPN a treatment took place several weeks ago and Fultz’s inflammation and symptoms have improved. Second opinions also have confirmed the 76ers’ ongoing treatment plan of physiotherapy, team sources said.
Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz, the top overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft, had fluid drained from his right shoulder and is planning to visit a specialist soon, his agent told ESPN on Tuesday. “Markelle had a shoulder injury and fluid drained out of the back of his shoulder,” agent Raymond Brothers told ESPN. “He literally cannot raise up his arms to shoot the basketball. He decided to try and fight through the pain to help the team. He has a great attitude. We are committed to finding a solution to get Markelle back to 100 percent.”
