NEW YORK (AP) - Back in Philadelphia, Allen Iverson could be back in the All-Star game.
Tracy McGrady also could have a starting spot - even though he might not play another game before then.
Iverson surged into second place among Eastern Conference guards after the third returns of All-Star balloting, putting him in position to make his ninth start. He is more than 155,000 votes ahead of No. 3 Vince Carter or Orlando.
McGrady inched back ahead of Steve Nash for second among West guards. He played only six games for the Rockets before they decided he would leave the team while exploring a trade for him.
Starters for the Feb. 14 game in Dallas will be announced Jan. 21.
