According to Adrian Wojnarowski of the ESPN, the Philadelphia 76ers point guard Markelle Fultz is expected to return on the court this season.

“His range of motion, there’s been improvement with his rehab” – Wojnarowski said – “Raymond Brothers [Fultz’s Agent] and Markelle Fultz expect that he’s going to play again this season.”

The 20-year-old player was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, which affects his shooting ability.

This season, Fultz played in 19 games and was averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists, while shooting at 41.9 percent from the field in 22.5 minutes of action.
