MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis Grizzlies guard Allen Iverson
could miss up to three weeks after an MRI revealed a partial tear
in his left hamstring.
The Grizzlies made the announcement before Wednesday night's exhibition game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. If the timetable is correct, Iverson would miss all of preseason, and his status for the season opener at home against the Detroit Pistons on Oct. 28 would be in jeopardy.
Iverson, declaring himself a quick healer, said he expects to be
back in time for the opener. He was hurt during the Grizzlies'
training camp in Birmingham, Ala. last week.
Entering his 14th season, the four-time NBA scoring champ signed with the Grizzlies last month, the biggest name ever to join the franchise.
