Markelle Fultz may not be back on the court this season.
The 20-year-old guard has been out since Nov. 19 and was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome earlier this month. General manager Elton Brand told reporters Saturday that there’s no timetable for Fultz’s return, and the team is not sure if he will play again in 2018-19.
Brand said Fultz is going through physical therapy and is not currently participating in basketball activities.
Fultz has averaged 8.2 points and 3.1 assists in 19 appearances in 2018-19.
Fultz was the top pick in the 2017 draft and began his career with high expectations. But he also dealt with injuries that caused a hitch in his jump shot during his rookie season, which limited him to 14 games.
The second-year guard has shot just 41.4 percent from the field and 26.7 percent from 3-point range in 33 career games.
The 76ers are hosting the Raptors on Saturday. They entered that matchup with a 21-12 record.
