‘Very serious’ family issue to keep Iverson out indefinitely

Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson has left the team and is out

indefinitely to spend time with his ill daughter.

Iverson will miss at least the remaining three games of

Philadelphia’s road trip. Iverson missed five games and the

All-Star game to be with his family when the health issue surfaced

earlier this month.

Iverson has not disclosed what is ailing his 4-year-old

daughter, Messiah.

Sixers president Ed Stefanski says it was in the best

interest of the team and Iverson to allow him time with his family

to deal with a “very serious issue.”
