Iverson, Webber out for Sixers

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers All-Star guard Allen
Iverson and forward Chris Webber are expected to miss Tuesday’s contest
against the New Jersey Nets, marking the team’s final home game of the season.

“It will be dealt with,” Sixers president Billy King said.

As of a half-hour before the game, Iverson and Webber were both reportedly not
even in the building. Tuesday is Fan Appreciation Night at the Wachovia
Center.

Iverson, who is averaging 33 points and 7.4 assists per game this season, has
struggled through a myriad of injuries. He has missed eight games this season,
four due to a left ankle sprain and four due to a right foot sprain and
contusion.

Webber, who is second on the team in scoring at 20.2 ppg and leads the squad
in rebounding at 9.9 per contest, will likely miss the game due to a back
injury.

The Sixers were eliminated from postseason contention on Sunday.
