Fultz will be re-evaluated by Dr. Kleber in three weeks, making his earliest possible return date November 20 against the Utah Jazz. Fultz, however, has a 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.

After the long, confusing, "he-said-she-said" story of "the Markelle Fultz shoulder issue", the number one overall pick will be out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated by the Philadelphia 76ers in approximately three weeks.

Our thoughts go out, as well, to the other victims of last night's shooting, whose names have not yet been made public. Fort Collins Police initially described the incident as a "shooting with injuries" and updated the status hours later.

Fultz's shoulder has bothered him all season and the Sixers said last week he would only miss three games.

"Following consultation with several shoulder specialists, including a visit with Dr". Fultz averaged 6 points and made just 9 of 27 shots.

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. Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Nerlens Noel each missed their entire rookie seasons after being taken early in the first round over the past few years. There did appear to be a hitch in his shot during preseason games, but Fultz has never been a spectacular shooter.
