No. 1 pick diagnosed with left ankle sprain

A local radio station posed that question Sunday morning, several hours after top pick Markelle Fultz suffered an ankle injury during a summer league game in Las Vegas and needed helping leaving the court. "We will treat him accordingly and be as cautious as we can, making sure he is healthy", 76ers summer league coach Lloyd Pierce said.

"Can't feel great, a guy going down, actually two players going down on the same play", Sixers president Bryan Colangelo told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.


I think every single Philadelphia 76ers fan on the planet threw out a few expletives as they either saw or heard about the injury to first-overall pick Markelle Fultz. Nothing is broken.The Sixers have had unbelievably bad luck with injuries. The rookie was with the team at their shootaround on Sunday morning - he was just watching, not participating - and was said to be in good spirits.

Fultz collapsed in a heap after stepping on someone's foot in Saturday night's NBA Summer League game. A high ankle sprain usually takes between four and six weeks to heal, which wouldn't effect his availability to play, full strength, when the regular season begins this fall. He required stitches and did not return to the game.


Noel missed his entire rookie season while recovering from an ACL injury while Embiid did so as well because of a foot injury.

The news comes as a huge relief for the Sixers and their fans.
