Iverson doubtful for Nuggets 

Mon, Feb 5, 2007

The Denver Nuggets may be missing three key players in their rotation tonight as they host the Phoenix Suns.

The Arizona Republic reports starters Allen Iverson and Marcus Camby and reserve forward Reggie Evans all are questionable heading into this contest.

Iverson has missed the Nuggets last three games because of a sprained right ankle and the flu. Camby left in the fourth quarter against the Sacramento Kings Saturday because of a groin pull, while Evans has missed Denver’s last two games also because of an ankle sprain.
