Fultz is now averaging 8.3 points on 42 percent shooting on the season in 22.5 minutes per game.

The Sixers continue to expect that Fultz will return to the team and reclaim a role off the bench, sources said. "My focus is to get Markelle healthy".

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the Sixers are "considering trading Fultz", though his agent has denied the rumors. It was reported last week Fultz would "prefer a fresh start with a new team" after a poor start to the season that has now been compounded with a wrist injury on top of a lingering right shoulder injury.

"The possibility of Fultz moving on is understandable considering how confusing things have been with the Sixers", Pompey wrote.

Although there had been rumblings of trade interest from various teams, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski revealed the Sixers have "stopped listening to trade overtures" for McConnell. They've already had trade discussions about the troubled former No. 1 draft pick. "The Sixers keep saying they will do whatever is best for Fultz, but the situation has overshadowed the success the team has had this season". Since the trade, J.J. Redick moved into the starting lineup and Fultz's playing time dwindled to a season-low of seven minutes against the Phoenix Suns last Monday.

McConnell has averaged 3.9 points and 2.4 assists in 16 games for Philadelphia this season.

Fultz is now idle while awaiting a visit with a shoulder specialist but has lost ground in the rotation to T.J. McConnell, who is serving as the primary backup point guard to Ben Simmons.

Fultz has not played since November 19. He can become a free agent after 2018-19.
