PHILADELPHIA (AP) Markelle Fultz won't play for the Philadelphia 76ers until his troublesome right shoulder is examined by a specialist on Monday.

Fultz, the No. 1 pick of the 2017 draft, added another curious chapter to an injury-plagued career when his representatives informed the Sixers on Tuesday that the guard would be examined next week.
