Philadelphia 76ers rookie Markelle Fultz out indefinitely because of right shoulder

The team announced Sunday that Markelle Fultz - the overall No. 1 pick in last June's draft - is out indefinitely with a right shoulder injury.

"Following consultation with several shoulder specialists, including a visit with Dr". This latest news comes after the 76ers revealed Fultz would sit out three games as he dealt with shoulder soreness.

Fultz had difficulty shooting this season and will be re-diagnosed by doctors three weeks from now.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz, the top pick in last June's National Basketball Association draft, will be sidelined indefinitely with the right shoulder injury that has hindered him this season, the Sixers said Sunday.

Health officials urge flu vaccine
Both sites will offer walk-up vaccinations, while a drive-thru option will also be available at the Tustin site. In severe cases, however, the virus can lead to unsafe complications resulting in hospitalization or even death.

Fultz has been hampered by his shoulder all season. He was putting up game averages of 6.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.8 assists.

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. There did appear to be a hitch in his shot during preseason games, but Fultz has never been a spectacular shooter.

T.J. McConnell has already shown great use of Fultz's minutes at point guard, and it's likely McConnell will continue to play an increased role while Fultz is in recovery.
