As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN Tuesday, Fultz's agent says he's been "diagnosed with Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, (TOS), a physical injury that affects nerves between the neck and shoulders".

Sixers guard Markelle Fultz is out indefinitely following a diagnoses of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

"There's no way you're the No. 1 pick in the world and all of a sudden your aren't able to consistently raise your arms to shoot", Fultz's agent told ESPN.

His agent maintains that Fultz's shooting struggles, which only really started once he entered the National Basketball Association, stem from this injury and that it is not a "mental problem", as some have suggested, according to ESPN. Something is physically wrong.

Fultz has missed Philadelphia's past six games and hasn't played since November 19. However, Wojnarowski also reports that the Sixers are hoping he's only sidelined three-to-six weeks. Brothers said Fultz will do his rehab in Los Angeles.
