76ers rookie Markelle Fultz might not play again this season

Sixers unsure whether Fultz will play again this season Sixers' Bryan Colangelo: Markelle Fultz could miss rest of season
Orlando Vargas | 10 February, 2018, 04:06

Philadelphia is no stranger to prized draft picks being unavailable for a year, and Fultz has appeared in only four games this season.

Markelle Fultz's weird rookie season might be nearing a fitting end. It seemed the Sixers had settled things down after all the craziness back in the early part of the season, and that Fultz would soon be back in a Sixers uniform.

Through four NBA appearances, the No. 1 overall pick didn't attempt a three-pointer, and all 27 of his field-goal attempts came within 16 feet of the rim, according to Basketball Reference.

"There's always a chance that he's gonna be out there soon, and there's a chance that he's not gonna play this year", Colangelo said. But the former Washington Husky has not played since October because of a nagging shoulder injury that seemingly gets worse every time the team talks about it.

"He's literally re-trained his shooting mechanics right now".

Sunday night brings scattered rain and snow with a low of 34 degrees and Monday will be partly sunny with a high of 43 degrees. The snow is expected to be heavy and wet, which can cause problems with vehicles getting stuck on unplowed roads.


Here's a look at everything Colangelo had to say about Fultz.

Colangelo bolted from the podium just as he was asked for a timeline on the reintegration of Markelle Fultz.

The timeline of events, as recalled by CBS Sports, was unusual and disappointing for a player who seemed like the closest thing a top pick can be to a sure bet coming out of college. As well, the Sixers have had to complete rebuild the muscle memory in Fultz's shooting mechanics.

Sixers fans, though, may have to wait until next season for that thought to prove prophetic. The team will be fine in the short term, as Philadelphia remains in decent position to finally make the playoffs thanks to the dominance of Joel Embiid. Since then, he's been dealing with a shoulder injury that requires Fultz to "retrain" his jump shot. Unfortunately, nobody knows when that might happen.
