Iverson Out Three Weeks

The AP is reporting

Memphis Grizzlies guard Allen Iverson could miss three weeks after an MRI revealed a partial tear in his left hamstring.The Grizzlies made the announcement before Wednesday night’s exhibition game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. If the timetable is correct, Iverson would miss all of preseason, and his status for the season opener at home against the Detroit Pistons on Oct. 28 would be in jeopardy.

That will hurt the Grizzlies chances of developing some cohesion and understanding to their play.

It could be quite hurtful that the Grizzlies didn’t fully settle the issue of who starts and who comes off the bench … and even more so, that they didn’t figure out how Allen Iverson fits alongside all the Grizzlies other offensive weapons.

Now the Grizzlies will have to try and answer those questions during the regular season. That could hurt their form early in the season.
