76ers' rookie Fultz (shoulder) out indefinitely

The team said he will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

When the Sixers drafted Markelle Fultz with the first pick in June, he was healthy, and many thought he could make an immediate impact. The Sixers initially announced Wednesday he would miss three games and be reevaluated this coming Tuesday.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz is out indefinitely with soreness in his right shoulder.

According to the team, the visit confirmed that Fultz has no structural damage to his shoulder, and will continue with physiotherapy treatment. Ben Kibler of the Shoulder Center of Kentucky and two Major League Baseball team doctors, the consensus opinion on Fultz's shoulder is that there is no structural damage.

Shaw's United take on Pochettino and his Tottenham side this Saturday, though the defender is unlikely to feature in the Premier League clash.

Fultz has been hampered by his shoulder all season. He started the regular season as a reserve and averaged 19 minutes, 6.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists over the team's first four games before being sidelined.

There is an open debate as to whether Fultz changed his shot because he was hurt or the changes he made in his shot caused the injury. There did appear to be a hitch in his shot during preseason games, but Fultz has never been a spectacular shooter.

Either way Fultz won't be playing anytime soon.

The 76ers traded with the Boston Celtics to get the overall No. 1 pick and draft Fultz.
