Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft, has been diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, his attorney/agent Raymond Brothers and the 76ers said Tuesday. Thoracic outlet syndrome, which involves compression or irritation in the thoracic outlet (area between lower neck and upper chest), was identified.

Despite the youngster's well-documented injury issues, Stephen A. Smith went on to suggest that Fultz's problems go much further than the shoulder injury that is now keeping him sidelined. The team would only say that Fultz is out indefinitely and will begin physical therapy immediately.

This diagnosis may bring some relief to Fultz and the Philadelphia 76ers.

"People were saying it was a mental problem and it is not", Brothers said.

That being said, the mysterious case of Fultz and his inability to shoot has taken many different turns over the previous year, so chances are this diagnosis is far from the end of the drama surrounding what is quickly becoming one of the biggest busts of all time.

Fultz hasn't played since November 19 and is only averaging 8.2 points per game on 41.9 percent shooting. "There's no way you're the No. 1 pick in the world and all of a sudden you aren't able to consistently raise your arms to shoot a basketball". Something is physically wrong. McConnell would be taking over a majority of Fultz's minutes.
