Fultz will return to the 76ers’ lineup on Monday, March 26, 2018. Coach Brett Brown made the surprise announcement before the Sixers’ game against Denver. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio, File)PHILADELPHIA — The curious case of Markelle Fultz took a surprising turn when the No. 1 pick of the 2017 draft was in the lineup for the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday for the first time since October.All-Star center Joel Embiid tweeted a GIF of WWE star The Undertaker rising from a casket.ADVERTISEMENT “This recovery was a little bit longer than expected,” Colangelo said.The 76ers traded the No. 3 overall pick and a future first-round pick to the Boston Celtics for the No. 1 pick with the intention of drafting Fultz.Fultz, a 6-foot-4 guard, kept a low profile and the only updates came from media shooting his video drills where he usually seemed to have little range, an inability to hit catch-and-shoot jumpers and an awkward form.The scrutiny surrounding his broken shot rattled the University of Washington star and he seemingly had been healthy enough to play — but his morale needed as much of a lift as his jumper.“Never was it at a stage where it definitely was going to happen,” Brown said. “Today, I felt something good with the performance he has been having in practices and some workouts. You could tell he has a confidence and a spirit.”Fultz averaged 6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists in his four games this season. He didn’t attempt a 3-pointer. Colangelo said he didn’t know if Fultz would play in the summer league.“The risk-reward, I’m going to lean on reward,” Brown said. “He’s different than anything that we have.”Colangelo said a drop-dead return date was never established, though the Sixers were getting closer to having one.“There’s going to be setback along the way in terms of your confidence,” Colangelo said. “I’m not even certain we can he’s 100 percent. But he’s 100 percent ready to get out on the floor in his own mind.”Led by Embiid and rookie of the year favorite Ben Simmons, the Sixers have won 42 games and put one of the worst stretches of basketball in NBA history behind them.

The team announced Dec. 9 the soreness was gone, the imbalance had been resolved, and he was going to participate in “elevated on-court basketball activities.” Then on Jan. 2, the team announced Fultz had been cleared to begin the final stage of his “return-to-play program.”The whole saga has mostly been a mystery, from likely return dates to the origin of the injury.“The cause is unknown at this stage,” team president Bryan Colangelo said. “We don’t know where it started, when it started. But it was some time from the time we saw him in summer league … to something that very quickly rose to awareness in late September, early October.”Fultz struggled with his mechanics when he did play, and his shooting form was widely mocked around the NBA.

first_imgThe decomposed body of a male was on Sunday morning discovered in a bus shed at Kuru Kururu Soesdyke/Linden Highway. The identity of the man has not been ascertained but according to reports received, he is suspected to be in his 20s or early 30s.Based on reports received, the man’s face is swollen and his skin has blisters. Persons in the area told Guyana Times via telephone that the body was discovered at about 08:00h by persons traversing the area after they came across to a strong stench.As they looked around, they reportedly saw the man lying in the bus shed. Some believe the body might have been brought and dumped in the bus shed since the body is in an advanced stage of decomposition.“If this body went here for a long time, the smell would have hit some body and they would check… up to yesterday, I passed there and ain’t see nobody in the bus shed”, a taxi driver told this publication.In addition, the body, they claimed, might be that of a man who suffered from a mental illness.They stated that the man would normally roam the area. However, after the discovery, the Police were summoned and the area was cordoned off.Up to press time, a release was not issued by the Police but the body was reportedly taken to the Lyken Funeral Home where it awaits identification and a post-mortem examination.An investigation has been launched into the discovery.last_img read more

first_imgA panic attack in 1978 sent him to the hospital and triggered a 20-year battle with depression. “It would get so bad, I would put a loaded .45 … on the bedstand, with the barrel facing my face. I would stare down the barrel until I could visualize the bullet leaving the barrel and entering my head. “The thought would scare me so much, I would snap my thoughts back to reality.” After years of therapy with department psychologists, Biller retired in 1991 with a better understanding of the factors that had fueled his emotional hell. “Your brain is like a sponge. It takes stress, you wring it out; it fills up with stress, you wring it out. What happens to a sponge after so many wring-outs is it can’t absorb water anymore. So what happens? All this stress goes into your system.” But at the time, his problems went largely undetected by supervisors and colleagues who said they admired him as a high-strung but tough and dedicated cop. A brutal childhood growing up in downtown hotels, foster homes and with relatives overseas had convinced Biller that he wanted to stand on the right side of the law. “Going to movies in downtown Los Angeles, that’s where I learned my morals – the good guys and the bad guys. I made up my mind I didn’t want to be a bad guy in life. I didn’t want to be like my father.” Dyslexic and largely self-taught, Biller was accepted into the Police Academy after he was honorably discharged from the Air Force in 1960. “At the time, the Police Department wanted guys who were streetwise. Because of my aggressiveness and ability to control my temper, they liked me.” Increasingly unhappy in his marriage, he found salvation in the demands of being an officer. “I was driving up Mulholland Drive and looking down at my uniform and badge, and I said to myself, `You made it. Your dream came true. You always wanted to be a policeman.’ I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.” But during the 1965 Watts riots, Biller broke down in tears as a crowd of protesters threw bottles and rocks at his patrol car. “That was the first time I broke. … It was anger. It was an accumulation thing. They were trying to kill us and harm us when we were down there trying to protect their property. “From that day on, it left a bad taste in my mouth.” By age 29, Biller was an angry cop – a mix of rage and risk-taking that made for aggressive policing. He violated Los Angeles Police Department policy that prohibits officers from shooting at unarmed fleeing felons and was suspended without pay. “I was classified as an animal by my deputy chief. … I had personnel complaints. I started having pains in my chest, but they couldn’t find anything wrong. They were just anxiety pangs, but I didn’t know what it was at the time.” A year later, he caught the eye of a lieutenant who asked him to join a busy station. “They taught me to drink. I was drunk by 1 p.m. It caused a lot of emotional problems. But it was the culture.” Biller said he stopped drinking abruptly when he began to have suicidal thoughts amid domestic turmoil and while he was investigating the shooting of an elderly man. “That’s about the time `M*A*S*H’ came out, and I was afraid to go see it. I was afraid I was going to kill myself. I knew I needed some psychiatric help because I knew this wasn’t me.” Biller got help from a police psychologist, who taught him how to get through the emotional crises: “Thoughts are just thoughts. You can think about things, but the important thing is don’t act on them. These are self-punishing thoughts. What do you have to punish yourself for?” Going through a divorce and working nearly round the clock, Biller said suicidal thoughts abated but other warning signs remained. “I was working two jobs and I’d get off morning watch to go home. I would stop at a liquor store and buy a pint of vodka and pour it into orange juice and drink it and put myself to sleep.” He went back to a department psychologist who said his continuing panic attacks stemmed from obsessive thoughts – like a phonograph needle stuck in a scratched album track. In the fall of 1986, during a Saturday shopping trip with his wife, he found himself crying for no apparent reason. With the support of his wife and more therapy, he got his life back on track, and finally retired on a Monday in 1991. Biller said he kept going into work until the following Friday, when a supervisor reminded him he was supposed to be at home. Biller said he hopes his story encourages young officers to seek help if they need it. “You know what painful is? Waking up and looking up at God and saying, `When is it going to end?’ This is why I told you, `Policemen kill themselves. They don’t kill other people … they kill themselves.”‘ beth.barrett@dailynews.com (818) 713-3731 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The dead boy’s grandfather has said his family hold no ill will towards the man and have welcomed him to come to the boy’s funeral.“It was a complete accident and we hold no ill will against this man. He is suffering his own pain too.“He is part of the grieving process and we hope very much that he will attend little Joshua’s funeral,” said Alan.Little Joshua’s remains are being waked at his home at Crieve Glebe where hundreds of people have been calling to sympathise with his parents Alex and Suzanna. Local priest Fr Eamon Kelly said he was happy that local people were able to come and see Joshua at the wake before the funeral ceremony.“We are lucky in Donegal that we still have wakes because they are declining throughout the country.“I think wakes are a positive thing because it allows people to grieve instead of large number of people visiting a family in a short space of time during a viewing.“We have no words of comfort or wisdom for Alex and Suzanna and their family. All we can do is to be there for them at this time,” he said.FUNERAL OF LITTLE JOSHUA TAKES PLACE TODAY was last modified: September 29th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:deathdonegalfuneralJoshua Coyleletterkennyvanlast_img read more
