Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz is still seeking answers for the injuries that have led to him taking a sabbatical from the team. 

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Fultz will continue to meet with specialists at least through the start of next week. 

Wojnarowski added Philadelphia is expected to update Fultz's status with the organization after his meetings are finished. 

Fultz's agent and attorney, Raymond Brothers, told The Athletic's David Aldridge on Nov. 20 that the 20-year-old scheduled an appointment with a shoulder specialist and wouldn't participate in Sixers games or practices until being examined. 

In addition to Fultz's shoulder, Jared Weiss, Derek Bodner and Sam Amick of The Athletic reported he's also been dealing with an injury to his right wrist and hopes to be traded for a fresh start. The 2017 No. 1 overall pick missed 68 games during his rookie season after being diagnosed with a scapular muscle imbalance in his right shoulder. 

Brothers told Wojnarowski he's made no inquiries to the 76ers about trading Fultz. 

Fultz appeared in Philadelphia's first 19 games this seasonincluding 15 straight starts to open the yearbut was relegated to coming off the bench after Jimmy Butler was acquired on Nov. 12. Fultz has averaged 8.2 points and 3.1 assists per contest.
