Markelle Fultz out at least 3 weeks with shoulder injury, 76ers announce

Adjust Comment Print

Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2017 National Basketball Association draft, has been bothered by the injury and even changed the mechanics of his free-throw shooting due to the issue. His right shoulder has been sore for a while now and upon examination, it was revealed that Fultz has a muscle imbalance.

Dr. Kibler confirmed that there is no structural impairment to Fultz's shoulder. This year it's Fultz. Fultz has had much-publicized struggles from the free throw line to start this season, and he's yet to attempt a three-pointer. There was something clearly wrong with Fultz's shoulder, at least we are all aware of what exactly is wrong with it and it's no longer a guessing game. This is an extension of that timeline, giving Fultz plenty of time to heal outside of the public spotlight.

Now? The Sixers say they are shutting Fultz down indefinitely and will re-evaluate him in three weeks. It doesn't appear that Fultz's injury is as grievous as the other's, but you just never know with the 76ers. 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.

The team originally announced that Fultz would miss three games. The weird Fultz shoulder saga has dampened that slightly, but the 76ers (finally) settled things the right way.
