KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Hopefully Fultz will be in that 1-3 week time range for recovery, but the Sixers are no stranger to the injury bug, so expect them to be extra cautious with their prized prospect from this year's draft as they have with other young players on their roster. He was helped off the floor as an all-too familiar feeling of Deja Vu swarmed over Philadelphia, just as it has over and over again during the team's relentless attempt to realize the dream of "The Process".

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.

The injury occurred as Fultz attempted to block Warriors rookie Jabari Brown from behind. The team said Fultz will be further evaluated.

It's likely that the Sixers won't put their star rookie back on the court anytime soon, and the best bet may be to use some bubble wrap or quarantine Fultz to make sure he's ready for action when the regular season rolls around.

There's no word yet on the extent of the injury, though it seems as if he will be unable to return to the game. They selected Ben Simmons at No. 1 overall in 2016, Jahlil Okafor in 2015 (No. 3), Joel Embiid in 2014 (No. 3) and Nerlens Noel in 2013 (traded from New Orleans to Philadelphia at No. 6). And then was out for the season and underwent minor knee surgery.

So please pardon Sixers fans for being a little testy.
