76ers guard Markelle Fultz out indefinitely

Markelle Fultz Out Indefinitely

The shoulder injury to 76ers guard Markelle Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NBA Draft, is apparently more serious than initially believed, as the team announced today the guard is out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated in three weeks. He will continue to undergo physiotherapy treatment.

Fultz does not have any structural damage in his ailing right shoulder but is dealing with soreness and muscle imbalance.

Former No. 1 pick Ben Simmons missed all of last season with an injury and 2014 No. 3 overall pick Joel Embiid played less than 40 games over his first three seasons because of injuries.


PHILADELPHIA - The 76ers find themselves involved in another injury controversy with a first...

The report also stated that Fultz had to have a cortisone shot in his shoulder back on October 5, suggesting the problem has been there for a while.

Add to that, the visible issue with Fultz's shot. The injury is unique in the sense there is no clear cause, a specific fall or collision on the court. He spent just one year at the University of Washington, averaging 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 5.9 rebounds per game for the Huskies. If you've been clinging to Fultz in a re-draft league, this is your cue to cut him for a healthy player.
