Grizzlies moving on, Allen Iverson or not

Ronald Tillery

As much as the Grizzlies are sympathetic toward Allen Iverson and are rooting for his return from a personal leave of absence, their last workout wasn’t the first without him.

The Griz had plenty of practice with Iverson away because of a hamstring injury during the preseason.

Still, the team’s time spent on the FedExForum practice court Monday was anything but a routine day at the office. The Griz return home to face the Portland Trail Blazers tonight with a five-game losing streak and a bit of controversy in tow.

Iverson won’t make his scheduled home debut in a Grizzlies uniform.

Their defense is ranked last in the league.
