PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson will miss the team's next two games because of the lingering illness of one of his children.
Iverson, who has missed the previous three games, will sit out Tuesday against Minnesota and Wednesday at Toronto. Iverson will return for the Sixers' first game following the All-Star break vs. Miami on Feb. 16.
There was no immediate word if Iverson will play in the Feb. 14 All-Star game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. He was voted an Eastern Conference starter.
Iverson has averaged 14.4 points in 25 games since he returned to the Sixers in December.
