Report: Fultz out tonight for Sixers vs. Celtics

The anticipated Markelle Fultz-Jayson Tatum rookie matchup may have to wait until the regular season.

The Philadelphia 76ers have listed Fultz as out with a shoulder injury for tonight’s preseason game against Tatum and the Celtics in Philly, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The teams play another preseason game Monday in Boston and meet for the first time in the regular season Oct. 20 in Philly. 

Fultz was selected No. 1 overall by the Sixers in the NBA draft this past June. Tatum was selected No. 3 overall by the Celtics, who, of course, owned the No. 1 pick until trading it to Philly for the third selection and a first-round pick in 2018.

The trade and draft positions of Fultz, the guard from the University of Washington, and Tatum, the forward from Duke, have - and will - lead to comparisons between the two as they start their NBA careers.
