In recent history, the Philadelphia 76ers have become a running joke because of their poor play, questionable draft choices and unfortunate string of injuries.

That poor luck continued as today it was announced that Markelle Fultz had a shoulder injury where, in the words of his agent Raymond Brothers, “he literally couldn’t shoot”. It is unknown how long Fultz will be out for but given the description of the injury it’s hard to see him coming back anytime soon.

Since another young 76er got injured it’s only right that we at Basketball Above All take the time to point out the recent injury history of this franchise (We’re sorry Sixers fans, at least you’re not the Suns).

2017

Round 1, Pick 1: Markelle Fultz

  • Injured his shoulder 4 games into his NBA career, unknown injury timeline

 

2016

Round 1, Pick 1: Ben Simmons

  • Injured his foot during the 2016 offseason, missed the entire 2016-17 season
  • Simmons has played in 4.7% of the games he could have potentially played in.

 

2015

Round 1, Pick 3: Jahlil Okafor

  • Famously dropped his jersey in disappointment on draft night
  • Got suspended for 2 games for fighting people in Boston
  • Injured his knee in a collision with a teammate, missed rest of 2015-16 season
  • Continued to deal with knee issues throughout the 2016-17 season
  • Played in 61.9% of the games he could have potentially played in

 

2014

Round 1, Pick 3: Joel Embiid

  • Went for surgery on his foot six days before the 2014 draft, was supposed to miss 4-6 months and ended up missing 2 full seasons
  • Tore his meniscus in February 2017 and missed the remainder of the 2016-17 season
  • Played in just 13.6% of the games he could’ve potentially played in

 

2013

Round 1, Pick 6: Nerlens Noel

  • Tore his ACL in February 2013, missed entire 2013-14 season as a result
  • Missed the first 23 games of the 2016-17 season due to knee surgery, spent the remainder of his time as a Sixer
  • Never averaged more than 11.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per game
  • Played in 55.9% of the games he could have potentially played in as a Sixer

Round 1, Pick 11: Michael Carter-Williams

  • Won Rookie of the Year in 2013-14 with an impressive 16.7p/6.2r/6.3a statline for the season
  • Missed first 7 games of 2014-15 season due to shoulder injury
  • Was traded to Milwaukee for nothing, absolutely nothing.
  • Played in 82.2% of the games he could’ve potentially played in as a Sixer

 

In all seriousness, you have to feel for the Sixers and their fanbase as the ones who have stayed true to the franchise have been through some bad basketball in recent years. One can only hope Fultz comes back to action soon enough so we can see that dynamic core of Fultz, Simmons and Embiid back together working their magic.
