Iverson To Have Growth Removed Tuesday
Allen Iverson will see a specialist Tuesday to have an undetermined growth in his right calf surgically removed, according to his business manager.
Iverson, who was playing for Turkey's Besiktas, returned to the United States last week to undergo tests after pain in the calf became unbearable.
He hopes to return to the court in four to six weeks and remains committed to playing in Turkey.
"He's determined," said Gary Moore, Iverson's manager. "He wants to play several more years."
