Allen Iverson away from Sixers indefinitely for personal reasons

Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson will not be with the team for the remaining three games of the current road trip and is out indefinitely for personal reasons related to a family matter.

“At this time, we feel that it is in the best interest of the Sixers, Allen and his family that he be allowed to deal with a very serious issue that is far greater than the game of basketball,” said President and General Manager Ed Stefanski.

The Iverson family kindly requests that their privacy be respected during this time.

The team will release any additional updates on Iverson’s status as they become available.
