Markelle Fultz expected to be full participant in training camp
The Orlando Magic have been refusing to place a timetable on when Markelle Fultz will return, but we now know that the 21-year-old will be ready to join his teammates when training camp begins next month.
On Wednesday, Magic president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman said he expects Fultz to have no limitations when training camp starts on Oct. 1.

Fultz, who was acquired by the Magic in a trade with the 76ers at the deadline last season, played in just 36 games during his time in Philly. The former Washington star did not make an appearance with Orlando last year, as he battled shoulder and wrist injuries.
Of course, the legitimacy of Fultz’s injuries has been questioned, as he seemed to be struggling with the shooting yips at one point. A video that surfaced last month appeared to show that he has improved his shooting form, so Magic fans have something to be optimistic about with the former No. 1 overall pick.
