Iverson sidelined with knee injury

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers All-Star guard Allen
Iverson will miss at least the next two games because of a knee injury.

Iverson, who has been plagued by numerous injuries this season, underwent an
MRI exam on Monday and the results were negative. He has been diagnosed with
right knee synovitis.

The three-time NBA scoring champion will sit out Monday’s contest versus
Milwaukee and Tuesday’s game against Chicago. He will then be a game-time
decision for the March 12 encounter with the Knicks.

In 45 games this season, Iverson is averaging 27.0 points, 6.8 assists and 3.8
rebounds per contest.
