Fultz traveled to Kentucky on Saturday to meet with shoulder specialist Dr. This latest news comes after the 76ers revealed Fultz would sit out three games as he dealt with shoulder soreness.

According to the team, the visit confirmed that Fultz has no structural damage to his shoulder, and will continue with physiotherapy treatment.
