After a three-week rest period, Fultz will be re-evaluated, possibly with an eye on surgery. The Sixers initially announced Wednesday he would miss three games and be reevaluated this coming Tuesday.

The team said Fultz saw multiple shoulder specialist, including Dr. Ben Kibler of the Shoulder Center of Kentucky and two Major League Baseball team doctors, the consensus opinion on Fultz's shoulder is that there is no structural damage.

According to TMZ , police were tipped off that there was child porn on Bruce Paddock's computer and obtained a search warrant. Bruce Paddock has previous convictions for vandalism, criminal threats and theft, NBC reported, citing court records.

People close to Fultz, including his personal trainer, say Fultz changed his shot because of the discomfort in his shoulder. His right shoulder has been sore for a while now and upon examination, it was revealed that Fultz has a muscle imbalance. There was also confusion when Fultz's agent mixed up whether Fultz had fluid drained or added to his shoulder, and when exactly that happened. There did appear to be a hitch in his shot during preseason games, but Fultz has never been a spectacular shooter.

He had averaged 23.3 points in his lone college season with the University of Washington. Now he joins Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid as heralded Sixers draft picks who missed time during their rookie seasons because of injury. If you've been clinging to Fultz in a re-draft league, this is your cue to cut him for a healthy player.
