Guard Markelle Fultz joined the Philadelphia 76ers to continue therapy in a shoulder condition, pressing for a return to the lineup this season, league sources told ESPN.

There is still no timetable for Fultz to play again this year, league sources said.

Fultz flew in a red-eye flight from Los Angeles and arrived in Philadelphia on Saturday, where he met with Sixers officials before today's game against Oklahoma City, the sources said.

Fultz, the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA draft, left the Sixers to meet with medical specialists on November 21 and has not played a game since. He was diagnosed with a condition called thoracic outlet syndrome and has been working with therapists in Los Angeles since December 6, but returned east for a brief visit at Christmas.
