Sixers’ Coleman placed on injured list

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers forward Derrick Coleman
was placed on the injured list Monday with left knee tendinitis.

Coleman has missed 36 games this season due to injury, including this past
Saturday’s contest versus Miami. He was activated from the injured list on
March 12 after missing 22 contests because of a right fourth metacarpal
fracture.

In 34 games this season, Coleman has averaged 8.0 points and 5.6 rebounds per
contest.

Meanwhile, the club activated forward Amal McCaskill from the injured list,
but he did not play on Monday against the Mavericks. McCaskill had been
sidelined with a lower back strain. In 54 games this year, he has averaged 2.0
points and 2.3 boards per outing.

In other news, All-Star guard Allen Iverson missed Monday’s 107-98 victory
over Dallas because of inflammation in his right knee. Iverson, the
team’s leading scorer with a 26.4 ppg average, has now missed a career-high
23 contests this season and the 76ers are 10-13 without him.
