Markelle Fultz Out Indefinitely

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz (20) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Luke Kennard (5) and forward Jon Leuer (30) in the second half at Little Caesars Arena. Prior to that visit, Fultz also met with two Major League Baseball team doctors.

The Sixers announced Sunday that Fultz will be out indefinitely because of "soreness and scapular muscle imbalance in his right shoulder".

The 76ers decided to make Fultz the No. 1 overall selection in the 2017 #NBA Draft, taking him over a host of other players with high ceilings.

The team said Fultz saw multiple shoulder specialist, including Dr. The team said he will be re-evaluated in three weeks. The last thing Sixers fans want is Fultz play through with the rough injury that affects how he plays the game in a major way. Fultz never looked right to begin the season and it's not a surprise to see Philly take a cautious route with the No. 1 pick.


Fultz has been hampered by his shoulder all season.

It's a big setback for the Sixers top pick whos truggled in four games this season averaging 6 points and 1.8 assists.

Fultz started the season playing and in the rotation as one of the first players off the bench.
