The 76ers said Fultz will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

The Philadelphia 76ers could be dealing with another long-term injury to a rookie lottery pick with Markelle Fultz now out indefinitely. His right shoulder has been sore for a while now and upon examination, it was revealed that Fultz has a muscle imbalance.

Just before 9 p.m.an off-duty Alachua County Sheriff's deputy who had worked the Spencer event earlier saw the men's vehicle. Gainesville Police charged 28-year-old Tyler Tenbrink and brothers Colton and William Fears with attempted homicide.

Fultz's shoulder has bothered him all season and the Sixers said last week he would only miss three games. The visit further confirmed that there is no structural impairment to the shoulder, and he will continue his physiotherapy treatment. Fultz averaged 6 points and made just 9 of 27 shots.

That's a disappointment for a team that has seen many of its top players miss significant time with injuries.

Fultz started the season playing and in the rotation as one of the first players off the bench. There did appear to be a hitch in his shot during preseason games, but Fultz has never been a spectacular shooter.
