Philadelphia 76ers rookie point guard Markelle Fultz will miss at least the next three games due to a right shoulder injury, the team announced on Wednesday.

The injury has already affected Fultz's shooting mechanics. The No. 1 pick in this year's draft is averaging six points and shooting 33.3 percent from the field and 50 percent from the free-throw line through his first four NBA games. He's yet to attempt a 3-point shot.

Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo said there is "no structural damage" to Fultz's shoulder while Fultz's agent Raymond Brothers said that Fultz has been unable to "raise up his arms to shoot the basketball" and that Fultz was planning to see a shoulder specialist soon.

"From a basketball perspective, it's been encouraging to see that Markelle can get any shot he wants during the games, but he has been unable to shoot the ball," Brothers said.
