Most of false informations and drama was from Fultz' camp.
First his menager/agent , Raymond Brothers made huge deal about draining fluids from his shoulder, just to re-track it and said something was shot into his shoulder.
He also claimed during the end of 2017 that Fultz is so hurt that he can't even lift his arm over his armlevel. Witch makes sense. Except it does not ,because Fultz was filmed dunking weeks later without any issues, yet still couldn't shoot.
During all that who got involved into fights with both Drew Hanlen and Keith William ( his coaches) - his mom. She was reported yelling at Drew during a game , and first coach was as far as i know, her ex boyfriend.
His mom always played big role in everything around him since he arrived in nba, including whole story of her installing cameras in his home . From what i know she even moved to live with him in Orlando (because Fultz did refer to her and his older sister as family, when he talked about them moving to Orlando to live with him ).
Guess who said he will be returning within 4 to 6 weeks, 6 months ago? Raymond Brothers.
His story is all over the place but it comes down to few simple questions:
what happend during summer of 2017 before/during summerleague
Why he was pulled out of SL 2018
Why he won't play SL 2019
Why he visited many doctors before he got diagnoesed by TOS
Why surgery wasn't needed ?
Why if surgery wasn't needed, he still can't shoot or play ?
Why there is no timetable of return for basketball player that missed 130 out of 160 games through 2 years?
Also doctor from LA who did work on his recovery , Dr Judy Sato, returned to work with Lakers again, and yet, after MONTHS or physical therapy, Steve Clifford repeated yesterday that there is no timetable of his return.
When you put all informations on a table that we have, it's hard to not be sceptical about his "injury " and think that something else is going on with him. Now is it some other injury ? Some mental problem? Some character issues? Nobody really knows . But one bummed shoulder can't bother you 2 years, especially if you are 19 years old, working with best medical stuff in whole world.
