“A physical injury.”

NBA: Chicago Bulls at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

So, there are a lot of people saying that your Phoenix Suns are interested in striking a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers for the top pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Markelle Fultz.

There’s some hangups though. Most center around the ineffectiveness of Fultz’s play his first 33 games in the league. You’ve probably heard that his shot leaves something to be desired. And until Tuesday there’s been some debate as to what is going on with Fultz. Now we have an answer.

Are we pointing out that it’s a physical injury so that fans and media will abandon talk that Fultz’s troubles are related to his mental state? It feels like we’re pointing out that it’s a physical injury so that fans and media will abandon talk that Fultz’s troubles are related to his mental state.

Fultz visited with several specialists before this conclusion was reached. He’s been ruled out indefinitely.

In the opinion of this author, Fultz’s struggles are both physical and mental. The way his shot is so roundly mocked? Yeah, that’s going to take its toll.

So what does this do for your interest in Fultz? The Suns are 4-19 and it’s going to get so much worse, so try and come up with an interesting take.
