76ers rookie Fultz out indefinitely with shoulder injury

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz drives to the basket during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons Monday Oct. 23,2017 in Detroit

Ben Kibler of the Shoulder Center of Kentucky and two Major League Baseball team doctors, the consensus opinion on Fultz's shoulder is that there is no structural damage. The 76ers had announced last week that Fultz would miss three games.

Now, it's 2017 No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz who's going to miss time due to an injury.

Now Philadelphia announced he will be out indefinitely with "soreness and scapular muscle imbalance" in his right shoulder.

There is no "structural impairment" in Fultz's shoulder, and he will continue physiotherapy treatment, the team said.


After the long, confusing, "he-said-she-said" story of "the Markelle Fultz shoulder issue", the number one overall pick will be out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated by the Philadelphia 76ers in approximately three weeks. After Brothers told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday that Fultz received a cortisone shot on October 5, the Sixers announced they would be holding Fultz out for the team's next three games.

Fultz has shot just 33.3 per cent from the field so far this season and has not attempted a three-pointer. Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Nerlens Noel each missed their entire rookie seasons after being taken early in the first round over the past few years. Part of the reason Philadelphia was a popular playoff pick had to do with the 76ers drafting him.

Either way Fultz won't be playing anytime soon.

Those plans are on hold for now and considering the 76ers past history with injuries it's fair for fans and media to wonder if - and not when - we will see Fultz on the court again this season.
