The Sixers curse continues after number one draft pick Markelle Fultz was ruled out indefinitely with an injury.

Fultz is now out with a shoulder injury after a disappointing start to the season. Fultz was shooting 33 percent overall and 50 percent from the free throw line in his first 4 NBA games. Also he hasn’t attempted a 3 point shot in his NBA career. Fultz had shoulder soreness which is now being called a scapular muscle imbalance in his right shoulder. According to Bleacher Report Fultz will be reevaluated in three weeks. Fultz was originally going to be out for three games but his injury is worse than initially thought.

Even with an almost entirely new team the Sixers are still having a rocky start to their season with a record of 3-4. Though the Sixers have lost more then they won they have been played veteran teams and in their most recent game won against the Houston Rockets. The game was in Houston and the final score was 115-107. Although the Rockets are the better team they have suffered injuries of their own with veteran point guard Chris Paul being out for up to a month with knee problems and with several other star players suffering severe injuries early into the season many teams have to adjust.

This is hardly the first time the Sixers have had problems with draft picks being injured. Over the past several years many of the Sixers draft picks have suffered injuries. Last year Ben Simmons, who was the first pick, suffered an injury that prevented him from playing any of the 2016-17 regular season. Joel Embiid had also suffered several injuries over the past few seasons which have held him from playing a significant amount of games.
