Fultz out 1-2 weeks

No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz will miss the rest of the National Basketball Association summer league because of a sprained left ankle. "We will treat him accordingly and be as cautious as we can, making sure he is healthy", 76ers summer league coach Lloyd Pierce said.

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 flawless piece to put with Simmons and Embiid. Jahlil Okafor missed a decent amount of time his rookie year and his name doesn't even come up when discussing recent Sixers rookies who missed time with injuries. "Again, based on the initial diagnosis, you rather hear that than something worse".

Fultz was attempting to block a drive in the third quarter by Warriors guard Jabari Brown when Fultz jumped and landed on Brown's heel.

"That was the USA secretary of commerce, who had promised us a 10-minute statement", organizer Werner M. Trump said Germany is selling too many cars in the US , which hurts the American automotive industry.

Fultz was a member of the 2016 Team USA Under-18 team that won the FIBA Americas World Championships last July.

Fultz collapsed in a heap after stepping on someone's foot in Saturday night's NBA Summer League game.

But he'll be back in the (emptier) gym in a couple weeks, readying for the season. The good news is that Fultz's outlook with an injury like this shouldn't put his regular season debut in question.

Base closure for explosives scare is defended
No injuries were reported during the incident. "There was something there at some point in time", Qualls said. Portions of Hanscom Air Force Base in MA have been evacuated due to security concerns about a moving truck.

Center Joel Embiid, the No. 3 overall pick in 2014, missed his first two National Basketball Association seasons with foot injuries and sat out 51 games last season.

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