76ers' Markelle Fultz diagnosed with nerve condition”

According to comments by Fultz's agent shared by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Fultz has been diagnosed with Thoracic outlet syndrome, which affects the nerves between the neck and shoulder.

After what has been close to two weeks of tests with various doctors, it appears Sixers guard Markelle Fultz has an answer as to why he has struggled to shoot over the last year-and-a-half.

Ever since he was drafted No. 1 overall, Fultz has dealt with issues. He's averaged 8.2 points and 3.1 assists per game in 19 games this season.

Brothers informed the Sixers on November 21 that Fultz would seek further opinions on his shoulder before a return to the court - a decision that the organization has left to Fultz and his management team.

The Sixers confirmed the news through a press release, stating that Fultz has been through a "series of consultations with specialists across several disciplines".

Brothers said his client would begin his rehabilitation program in Los Angeles, not Philadelphia.

"People were saying it was a mental problem and it is not", Brothers told ESPN on Tuesday night. Something is physically wrong.
