Fultz’s agent, Raymond Brothers, told ESPN three weeks ago that his client is progressing well in rehabilitation on his right shoulder and expects Fultz to return to the team this season.
Brothers said that Fultz has been regaining strength and mobility in a right shoulder that the agent believes will improve a jump-shot form that has failed him thus far in the league.”
Fultz has struggled with injury through the first two seasons of his career, playing in just 33 games, averaging 7.7 points and 3.4 assists. The lingering shoulder issues have primarily affected his jump shot, with the 20-year-old shooting 41.4% from the field and 26.7% from three for his career.
