The 76ers rebuilding process that took place over the last few seasons has finally materialized. With a 13-11 record, the Sixers are a solid team. Not great — that’s just the 9th best record in the Eastern conference — but solid, and the future should only be brighter. Especially when rookie guard Markelle Fultz eventually regains full health and can perhaps become a serious contributor.

For now, Fultz remains out. According to the Sixers, he is “no longer experiencing soreness in his right shoulder and the scapular muscle imbalance is resolved.”

He’s still undergoing physical therapy. Still healing. The team says they’ll issue another update on his shoulder and overall health in three weeks.

Hopefully, in three weeks we hear that he’s actually ready to play. And that the process won’t be extended.

There’s clearly no rush for Fultz to come back until he’s truly ready.

The Sixers have lost two games in a row. They play the Cavs in Cleveland tonight.
