Markelle Fultz Suffers Left Ankle Sprain in Vegas Summer League Game Fultz suffers left ankle sprain in Vegas Summer League game

Philadelphia 76ers rookie Markelle Fultz was helped off the court after rolling his left ankle in the team's summer league game against the Golden State Warriors in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Instead, his teammates had to help him down the tunnel and into the locker room to be evaluated by doctors.

While Fultz's performance prior to the injury wasn't quite as impressive as his Utah Summer League dominance in two games, he turned in some highlight-reel plays.

Fortunately, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported that it's simply a sprained ankle.

The 76ers also confirmed the signings of free-agent guard J.J. Redick and forward Amir Johnson.

Markelle Fultz is officially a Sixer.

As well as this, the anti-touting measures for purchasing the tickets caused some delays in people getting a hold of tickets . There was also a strict limit placed on the sale of tickets this morning, with customers only allowed to buy four at a time.


However, if it's a long-term absence for the top pick, it'll just continue the string of bad luck for fans in Philly over the last few years.

Fultz's injury has immediately drawn comparisons to the No. 1 overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft, Ben Simmons, who fractured his foot in September and missed the entirety of the 2016-17 season.

Fultz averaged 23.2 points last season for the Huskies, tops among freshmen, and added 5.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game, the only Division I player to reach those stats.

Philadelphia selected Fultz out of the University of Washington.
