July 9, 2017 0

Over the past few weeks, the future has seemed extremely bright for the young roster of the Philadelphia 76ers.

After drafting scoring machine Markelle Fultz with the number one overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft, the resurgence of the Sixers has been the talks of many NBA fans and experts. Last night during NBA Summer League action, Sixers fans caught a scare as Markelle Fultz was assisted off the court after suffering a left ankle injury.

Fultz did receive X-Rays and was diagnosed with a sprained ankle. Fultz will miss a week or so of play for the Sixers Summer League team. Sixers fans across Pennsylvania including Sixers star Joel Embiid were hoping all would be well. Embiid tweeted out “oh no no no.. don’t do this to us”.

The Sixers will be back in action in Las Vegas tonight against the San Antonio Spurs but Markelle Fultz will not be in the lineup. Stay tuned to HHS1987 for more NBA news. Follow @eldorado2452 on Twitter and Instagram for all your NBA and sports news.
