Iverson may be back early – The Detroit Free Press
“I’m disappointed that the soreness I’m feeling in my back is going to force me to miss two weeks of action,” Iverson said in the statement. “After talking with the doctors at Georgetown yesterday they have told me that treatment and rest is the best course of action right now. Hopefully my back with heal and I’ll be ready to go following this two-week period.”
Iverson also said he had no problem with returning as a reserve.
“My goal is to help this team win a championship and I’ve said that from the first day I arrived here in Detroit,” he said in the statement. “I’m going to do whatever it takes to help us achieve our goals as a team regardless if I’m starting or coming off the bench.”
Allen Iverson is saying all the right things, lets just hope he fully recovers and flourishes in his new role on the team. AI off the bench can be deadly, lets just hope he buys in.
