Markelle Fultz tells fans 'I'm ok' after injury scare

Sixers Sign 2017 First Overall Pick Markelle Fultz Markelle Fultz Suffers Scary Ankle Injury, Ruled Out For Rest Of 76ers' Summer League Game

Fultz will not play Sunday and there is no timetable for his return to action.

But this injury won't put him in line with Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons as 76ers first-round picks to miss their rookie year. Fultz crumpled to the floor and had to be helped off with the help of teammates. "At only 19 years of age, the sky is the limit for Markelle and we could not be happier to have him join our Sixers family".

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.

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

The number one overall pick of this year's NBA Draft rolled his ankle during the third quarter in a game against the Golden State Warriors. Their core is far from complete from a developmental standpoint, which means we'll likely see some noticeable growing pains from a Sixers team that is still striving towards sustained success. And then he was ruled out for the whole season.

He joins a young squad that features Australian forward Ben Simmons, who was taken with the top pick by the 76ers a year ago but missed all of last season with a foot injury.

Naturally, social media was abuzz after Fultz's injury. But you can't blame Sixers' fans for freaking out just a little bit.
