Markelle Fultz will see a shoulder specialist early next week at the direction of his agent Raymond Brothers.
Fultz will not participate in team practices or games until after he is seen by the specialist.
Brett Brown and general manager Elton Brand said they weren't aware of any issues with Fultz prior to Brand receiving a call from Brothers on Tuesday morning.
"There's nothing we saw medically that didn't allow him to play," Brand told reporters after the team practiced at its Camden, New Jersey, facility Tuesday afternoon. "He played last night. He played two days ago.
"Ever since Jimmy Butler came [last week] and [Fultz] wasn't starting, I thought he played pretty well. I was proud of him the way he bounced back from a lot of things."
from 76ers forum:
"This move today stinks of being agent driven. His agent sees the writing on the wall that Fultz can only play PG, and that spot is taken here. So he's making moves to help get him out of town. He wants his client to have his own team to run so he can put up (empty) numbers and lock in a big extension. All of that is unlikely here, hence this power play."
