Nah, we just don't hear any updates or progress at all on his situation.

I hope so but I've lost faith in him.

Not sure if it's nerve damage or just a major case of the yips. Perhaps a combination of both but the fact he seems so fragile mentally that he's disappeared off the NBA world map, he doesn't appear confident in himself so don't like his odds.

Something happend and he and his inner circle are keeping it to themselves. Feels like a big scam to be honest.

Yup. At least Anthony Bennett flat out sucked, amongst other 1st overall picks who flamed out. Fultz has never had ample opportunity to do much of anything.

Royce White was another one. How did Houston not know about his phobia?

He'll play, but it will become apparent that his shot is completely broken and whatever BS medical excuse they come up with this time wont save his career. I think this is his last season in the league before going to China.

Interestingly enough, White's situation made the NBA more conscious towards mental health issues, which prompted the Demar Derozan and Kevin Love initiative to bring awareness to mental health. I think the Rockets knew, but no one really took mental health stuff seriously at the time, and White's refusal to play really helped to bring light to the situation.

His team is trying to do everything they can to get that fourth year option picked up by the Magic. When that date passes in Fall 2019, I doubt he ever plays another game in the NBA regardless of whether the option is picked up or not.

It's a shame. Lots of theories, but only he and his camp really know what happened.

"Common causes of thoracic outlet syndrome include physical trauma from a car accident, repetitive injuries from job- or sports-related activities, certain anatomical defects (such as having an extra rib), and pregnancy." He was in a motorcycle accident before the symptoms came to light. No idea why people don't want to believe this. Not sure if he'll ever recover, but it's definitely TOS. Just like Landry Fields and Ben Uzoh.

He will. But I think he needs to exorcise his demons.

I still dont get what was Royce problem. It said he has sociophobia, but I have that and know what it means and I dont think he has that at all. Him saying he was anxious to go to crowded room was the only symptom I recognized, otherwise how the hell sociophobic person did things he did, i for example can even go on live chats or play online games.

Not the yips, just read my post above. People who don't know the difference between neurological and structural damage are the ones calling foul play.
