Fultz was down for a few minutes, and he had to be helped off the court. It left everyone thinking, "Oh no, not again", including Joel Embiid.Here's how it happened:Fortunately, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported that it's simply a sprained ankle. The first reaction of watching Fultz getting carried off the court is an obvious one; a process that's been marred in injuries.

Top overall pick Markelle Fultz signed a contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, the team announced on Saturday.

Fultz's injury marks the latest stroke of bad luck for the Sixers when it comes to their first-round draft picks.

Fultz was taken for X-rays, which came back negative. Furkan Korkmaz continued to find his groove this Summer League as he led the Sixers in points tonight with 15.

"I'm a little relieved (looking at the replay of the injury)".

But Pierce said he was trying not to look at it that way.

The 76ers pulled off a trade with Boston before the draft to move up from No. 3 to No. 1 to take Fultz, the dynamic scoring point guard that team president Bryan Colangelo felt was the ideal piece to put with Simmons and Embiid.

The Sixers also added veterans J.J. He was just the second NCAA freshman to average 23 points, five rebounds and five assists per game since 1992-93. With the Eastern Conference in shambles and a significant talent boost via both the draft and free agency, Brett Brown finally has enough talent to mold a competitive roster - and one that can be competitive for the foreseeable future. "He has proven to be a better shooter than personally I expected".
