76ers' rookie Fultz (shoulder) out indefinitely

Markelle Fultz #20 of the Philadelphia 76ers looks on prior to the game against the Houston Rockets at the Wells Fargo Center on October 25, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Sixers' statement says the rookie will be reevaluated in three weeks.

Fultz visited with several shoulder specialists and was found to be suffering from a scapular muscle imbalance in the right shoulder. 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.

Whether it's Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel, Ben Simmons, or now Markelle Fultz, the Philadelphia 76ers always seem to have a top draft pick affected by injury. 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.

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

Fultz averaged 23.2 points in his one and only college season at Washington.

If you've been clinging to Fultz in a re-draft league, this is your cue to cut him for a healthy player. It doesn't appear that Fultz's injury is as grievous as the other's, but you just never know with the 76ers.
