Iverson AWOL from practice 2 col, 2deks, 42 pt bold

Iverson AWOL from practice 2 col, 2deks, 42 pt bold
Allen Iverson apparently chose family and food over practice and the point guard will be fined for it.

Iverson was the only player who didn't show up when the Detroit Pistons worked out for an hour on Thanksgiving.

Coach Michael Curry confirmed Iverson will be fined, will not start tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks and might not play in the game for missing the practice.

"I expected everybody to be here," said Curry, who spoke in calm tones. "I'm surprised when guys are late. I'm surprised when they don't show. It's a pretty hefty fine to be late, or to miss."

After Detroit traded for the superstar, Iverson insisted he would do whatever Curry wanted him to and even mocked his famous rant about practice while playing for the Philadelphia 76ers.

No players spoke to the media Thursday, and president of Basketball operations Joe Dumars declined to comment on Iverson's absence.

The Pistons are 5-5 since acquiring Iverson from Denver for Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb. McDyess and the Nuggets reached a buyout agreement, and the forward's agent said he will re-sign next month in Detroit.

Magic 105, Wizards 90: Dwight Howard had 26 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks as Orlando beat Washington, the Magic's six win in a row on the road. Caron Butler had 25 points for the Wizards, who played their second game under interim coach Ed Tapscott after beating the Warriors by 24 points in the first. He replaced the fired Eddie Jordan on Monday.

Knicks: New York will practice without Stephon Marbury today, and it's likely the point guard will be exiled with pay while the team mulls its options on how to part ways with him, Newsday reported.
