There was something clearly wrong with Fultz's shoulder, at least we are all aware of what exactly is wrong with it and it's no longer a guessing game.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz is out indefinitely with soreness in his right shoulder. The 76ers had announced last week that Fultz would miss three games. The good news is there was no structural damage found.

The report also stated that Fultz had to have a cortisone shot in his shoulder back on October 5, suggesting the problem has been there for a while.

The original hope was that he was going to be able to play through it, but it has been rumored that he was altering his shooting motion to deal with the pain.

Houston Texans Players Almost Walked Out of Practice Over Owner's 'Inmates' Remark
One of the owners who agreed with Jones was McNair, who made his controversial comment after Jones was done talking. Kaepernick, who remains a free agent, is expected to attend next week's meeting between players and owners.

Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2017 National Basketball Association draft, has been bothered by the injury and even changed the mechanics of his free-throw shooting due to the issue.

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.

The biggest concern to this point has been his altered shooting stroke, which has led to just a 33.3 field-goal percentage to go with 50 percent from the free-throw line.

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.
