Philadelphia 76ers rookie point guard Markelle Fultz, out with a shoulder injury, is progressing but will be out for at least two to three more weeks, the team said in a statement Sunday.
Fultz, the first overall pick in the 2017 draft, was examined Sunday by Dr. Ben Kibler, the medical director of the Shoulder Center of Kentucky at the Lexington Clinic, for soreness and scapular muscle imbalance in his right shoulder, the team said. The team shut down Fultz on Oct. 29 to give the injury time to heal.
