Iverson again out with injured ankle
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers All-Star guard Allen
Iverson will not play in Tuesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns with a
sprained left ankle.
Iverson has also missed the team’s past two games, a 91-76 win over the New
York Knicks this past Saturday and a 89-81 victory over the Orlando Magic on
The 30-year-old Iverson, who is second in the NBA in scoring with an average
of 33.6 points per game, was hurt in the fourth quarter of the team’s overtime
loss against the Orlando on January 26.
Iverson stepped awkwardly on the Magic’s 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, has 18 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists
in Philadelphia’s two wins since the injury.
