Injured Iverson sits out against former coach

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia guard Allen Iverson is
out for the 76ers’ game against former coach Larry Brown and the Detroit
Pistons Monday night due to a shoulder contusion.

Iverson sat out Sunday’s practice with his arm in a sling, but received good
news that the X-rays taken on his injured shoulder were negative.

In Thursday’s victory over Seattle, Iverson hit the scorer’s table hard with
his shoulder while running after a loose ball. He played the following night
in Los Angeles in a loss to the Lakers but felt pain causing him to get an X-
ray later that night.

Iverson is averaging 27.4 points and 6.6 assists this year for the struggling
Sixers.
