Markelle Fultz returning to Magic lineup Monday

USA Today

Former number one overall pick of the 2017 draft Markelle Fultz will play tonight for the first time since January of 2021.

ESPN reported a couple of days ago that Fultz would return Monday against the Indiana Pacers, so this is just confirmation.

The 23-year-old will likely be on a minutes restriction since sitting out for so long, so don’t be surprised if he’s very limited and slowly eased back into the rotation.

Fultz’ injury was a tough one as he suffered an ACL tear after playing in just eight games in the 2020-21 season.

He was averaging 12.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 5.4 assists before the injury.
