Orlando​ Magic​ point​ guard Markelle Fultz has reached a new​ stage in​ his​ ongoing recovery​ from​ thoracic​​ outlet syndrome. After spending the last few months rehabilitating in Southern California, the former No. 1 overall pick has relocated to Central Florida and will continue his rehab regimen in Orlando. Fultz is not practicing with the team and has no timetable for his return, but he will attend Magic practices and games. He said it felt “unbelievable” to be around his new teammates.
When Fultz was asked how his rehab work is going, he answered, “It’s going great. I’m feeling really good. I’m happy. I’m blessed. And as I’m going forward, I’m just sticking with the plan and just going through rehab. Later, he added: “I’m just doing rehab and a little bit of stuff on court. But I’m just keeping it pretty basic, just sticking to the rehab part. I am doing a lot of conditioning, a lot of stuff on the court.”

How is Markelle Fultz doing? Jeff Weltman: Markelle is doing very well. He’s in Los Angeles continuing his rehab. We have sent one of our performance staff to be out with him to try to understand what he’s going through from the more scientific perspective, and I have been out there to spend some time with him and watched him work out. It’s just a matter of understanding where he is and supporting him. But I can tell you confidently that he’s making significant progress and he’s feeling like he’s in a very good place. As I’ve been saying, the timetable will dictate itself. We’re not going to superimpose a timetable over what he’s experiencing and what he’s going through. So as it plays out, the next step will be for him to join his team in Orlando and all of us to get our arms around him to continue the good work that he’s been doing in L.A., and we’ll just take it from there.
Markelle Fultz, the former No. 1 overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers who was traded to the Orlando Magic in February to get a fresh start, is not likely to get it this season. Magic coach Steve Clifford said Monday that Fultz probably won’t finish rehabbing his injured shoulder in time to suit up this season. “He’s still rehabbing his shoulder and he’s not even able to really do much on the floor yet,” Clifford told SiriusXM Radio. “It’s a pretty significant shoulder injury. “I would say he’s starting to do a little bit, but it would be very difficult for him to get back this year.”
