The Sixers are expecting to announce an anticipated medical update on Markelle Fultz Friday. In the meantime, president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo provided an update on the rookie, who returned this week from rehabbing in Kentucky.

“Surface level, I would say that he's progressing well,” Colangelo said Thursday night. “He continues to focus on the PT and strength and conditioning aspect of the return. The good news is the soreness is completely gone and the muscle imbalance is gone.”

Fultz has been sidelined since late October because of right shoulder soreness and scapular muscle imbalance. The injury became apparent early in the season when his shot form was dramatically different than in college and even as recent as summer league. The tricky part was the Sixers were uncertain if Fultz changed his shot because of the injury, or if the injury impacted the change in shot.
