76ers' rookie Fultz (shoulder) out indefinitely

Markelle Fultz Out Indefinitely

Per Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times, the point guard was diagnosed with "soreness and scapular muscle imbalance in his right shoulder". "Fultz will be reevaluated by Dr. Kibler in approximately three weeks".

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.

Dr. Kibler confirmed that there is no structural impairment to Fultz's shoulder.

Tech Billionaire Joseph Tsai Set To Purchase 49 Percent Stake In Nets
Under the reported terms, Tsai will have the option to purchase controlling interest in the team in four years. The Nets haven't had a winning season since the 2013-14 campaign, finishing last season with a 20-62 record.

Fultz's shoulder has bothered him all season and the Sixers said last week he would only miss three games.

Fultz averaged 23.2 points in his one and only college season at Washington. He did not attempt a 3-pointer and was 6 of 12 from the foul line. 76ers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo and coach Brett Brown have suggested Fultz changed his shot before the injury. This isn't particularly shocking news as while Fultz was out on the court, he looked extremely uncomfortable. Finally, Ben Simmons missed the whole of his rookie season due to a Jones fracture. There did appear to be a hitch in his shot during preseason games, but Fultz has never been a spectacular shooter.

Hopefully, Fultz can return back to his best, but he should take as much rest as he needs.
