Markelle Fultz out indefinitely, will be re-evaluated in 3 weeks

Fultz does not have any structural damage in his ailing right shoulder but is dealing with soreness and muscle imbalance. I kept wondering how they knew three games would heal a shoulder when they weren't completely sure what the problem was. This is potentially really bad for The Process.

Last week, the team said Fultz was expected to miss three games, which would have put him on track to return for Thursday's (AEDT) home game against the Hawks.

Fultz has missed the Sixers last two games, and he didn't looked comfortable in his first four National Basketball Association games before that. A report by ESPN has just relayed the news that Fultz is out indefinitely with his shoulder injury.




His shot didn't look the same as it did during the summer or at the University of Washington last season. Now he joins Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid as heralded Sixers draft picks who missed time during their rookie seasons because of injury.

Fultz started the season playing and in the rotation as one of the first players off the bench. That includes losing four of their first five games, but the 76ers did beat the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday (Oct. 28) to get another notch in the win column.

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.
