Joel Embiid woried after Markelle Fultz was helped off court

The Philadelphia 76ers may have been dealt a blowback to The Process on Saturday after top pick Markelle Fultz needed to be helped to the locker room after suffering an apparent ankle injury during the Las Vegas Summer League.

The 76ers’ No. 1 draft pick Markelle Fultz left the game with an ankle injury on Saturday night. 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. Nothing is broken.

The Sixers have had unbelievably bad luck with injuries.

Before last season, their 2016 No. 1 draft pick Ben Simmons fractured a bone in his foot at a practice in September. Two seasons ago, their 2015 No. 3 pick Jahlil Okafor tore his meniscus in March. Then, of course, their 2014 No. 3 pick Joel Embiid underwent multiple foot surgeries that forced him to miss two seasons, and Embiid ran into more injury trouble as he tore his meniscus after playing in 31 games this past season.
