1 overall pick Markelle Fultz has now been announced as "out indefinitely".

The 76ers decided to make Fultz the No. 1 overall selection in the 2017 #NBA Draft, taking him over a host of other players with high ceilings. Fultz will be re-evaluated by Dr. Kleber in three weeks, making his earliest possible return date November 20 against the Utah Jazz. The visit further confirmed that there is no structural impairment to the shoulder, and he will continue his physiotherapy treatment. Fultz, however, has a scapular muscle imbalance in his right shoulder. This latest news comes after the 76ers revealed Fultz would sit out three games as he dealt with shoulder soreness. There was also confusion when Fultz's agent mixed up whether Fultz had fluid drained or added to his shoulder, and when exactly that happened.

Our models project Fultz to post averages of 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists over 27.1 minutes per game remaining once he's healthy.

Trump has expanded his target to include National Football League owners who do not mandate their players stand. Goodell said later that "We're going to encourage our players to stand".

Add to that, the visible issue with Fultz's shot.

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

Hopefully, Fultz can return back to his best, but he should take as much rest as he needs.
