Iverson out with injured ankle

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers All-Star guard Allen
Iverson missed the team’s 91-76 win over the New York Knicks on Saturday night
with a sprained left ankle.

Iverson, who is second in the NBA in scoring at 33.6 points per game, was hurt
in the fourth quarter of the Sixers Thursday night loss against Orlando.

Iverson stepped awkwardly on Dwight Howard and immediately hobbled to the
bench in pain. The superstar guard did return to play, but was in obvious
discomfort the rest of the way.

His replacement, Kevin Ollie, played a wonderful floor game against New
York. The veteran only scored six points, but had five assists and no
turnovers while keeping everyone involved in the Sixers’ offense.
