Ankle sprain reportedly ends Markelle Fultz's summer league campaign

10 July 2017

This is not what Philadelphia 76ers fans wanted to hear about Markelle Fultz, especially with how often the team has been burned by injuries to recent draft picks.

The story around the Sixers always seems to focus on the injury bug they can't seem to shake.

"Can't feel great, a guy going down, actually two players going down on the same play", Colangelo told Shelburne. Larry Drew II hit the game-winning shot with 8 seconds left to secure a 95-93 win over the Warriors, but what was most important is Markelle Fultz health.

Jamie Donaldson, who was tied for 12th after 36 holes, withdrew before his third round because of a pulled muscle in his back. Rose's round didn't begin well as he slipped to a bogey on the first. 3 and 5.

It's likely that the Sixers won't put their star rookie back on the court anytime soon, and the best bet may be to use some bubble wrap or quarantine Fultz to make sure he's ready for action when the regular season rolls around.

Fultz was chasing down Golden State's Jabari Brown midway through the third quarter, but on his way up, Fultz stepped on Brown's foot. And then he was ruled out for the whole season. Barring further injury, Joel Embiid has the potential to become of the league's foremost interior forces, while both the 2016 and 2017 first overall picks will be joining the starting rotation next season in the form of Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz. And then was out for a few weeks leading into February.

Although the severity of Fultz's sprain isn't yet known, the Sixers' injury misfortunes are becoming a serious speed bump in their attempts to become players in the Eastern Conference. But you can't blame Sixers' fans for freaking out just a little bit.
