PHILADELPHIA -- Allen Iverson sat out Philadelphia's game against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night with a sprained left ankle.

Iverson, second in the NBA in scoring at 33.6 points per game, has missed three straight games since he was injured in the fourth quarter of a game against Orlando last Thursday.

The 76ers won the first two games without Iverson.
