Even when it at first looks like good news, no Markelle Fultz news is ever good news. For example:

Fultz was shelved on October 25, after his bizarre, dysfunctional shooting motion was finally attributed to a hurt shoulder. Initially this was considered a short-term measure, with Fultz scheduled to miss only three games. A few days later, on October 29, the injury was finally namedā€”scapular muscle imbalanceā€”and his timeline for return was made indefinite, although he was to be reevaluated after three weeks. Three weeks later, Fultz was reevaluated, and ... a new reevaluation date was set, two to three weeks in the future. Folks, when the Sixers say ā€œindefinite,ā€ they fuckinā€™ mean indefinite.

Here we are, three weeks later, and the news is that Fultz will be reevaluated in three weeks. I have a pretty good idea what the result of that reevaluation will be. I look forward to a day when I can blog a damn Markelle Fultz NBA highlight, but that possibility is looking more and more remote. Fultzā€™s hype and rookie season are fading away into obscurity, one three-week reevaluation at a time.
