What Markelle Fultz's indefinite absence means for the Sixers

Fultz becomes the fifth 76ers' rookie in as many years to suffer a somewhat serious injury, causing a lot of missed time during their early careers. "Kibler in approximately three weeks".

Originally reported that Fultz was going to miss the Texas road trip in three straight games, he will now be out "indefinitely" with his shoulder injury, with no structural damage.

But in a statement today, the team said after that Fultz's consultation with shoulder specialists, he will remain out with "soreness and scapular muscle imbalance in his right shoulder".

The Sixers picked up their second win of the season on Saturday over the Dallas Mavericks after playing the Rockets tough in Philadelphia on Wednesday night. Philadelphia has a history of redshirting its rookies due to injury.

Fultz is shooting 33 per cent, 50 per cent from the free-throw line and has not attempted a 3-point shot all season, all as a reserve.

People close to Fultz, including his personal trainer, say Fultz changed his shot because of the discomfort in his shoulder.

The reason for the incident is not yet clear, but the image of the plane suggests that it hit an object while flying. Along the way, their airplane was damaged in mid-air, with the nose of the plane being completely caved in.

Fultz averaged 23.2 points in his one and only college season at Washington. The same thing happened with Ben Simmons last season, missing the year thanks to a foot injury. Part of the reason Philadelphia was a popular playoff pick had to do with the 76ers drafting him.

Hopefully, Fultz can return back to his best, but he should take as much rest as he needs. Philadelphia felt Fultz, with his outside shooting ability, was the flawless player to pair with Simons in the backcourt.
