Iverson to miss 2nd game due to child’s illness

Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson will sit out a second

straight game because one of his children is ill.

Team officials say Iverson will miss Friday’s game against

the New Orleans Hornets. He also sat out the 76ers’ overtime win

over Chicago on Wednesday. He will be a game-time decision for

Saturday’s game at Houston.

Iverson has averaged 14.4 points in 25 games since he

returned to the Sixers in December. He was voted an Eastern

Conference All-Star for the Feb. 14 game.
