Philadelphia 76ers rookie Markelle Fultz suffered a high ankle sprain in the team’s summer league game against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night in Las Vegas, a source told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne. Fultz was helped off the court after rolling his left ankle. Sixers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo told Shelburne that Fultz was diagnosed with a sprained ankle.

Fultz will not play Sunday and there is no timetable for his return to action. “We will treat him accordingly and be as cautious as we can, making sure he is healthy,” 76ers summer league coach Lloyd Pierce said. “We will know [more] once we get some treatment on him. I haven’t heard anything [more].”
