Although he has missed the 76ers’ last five games, Allen Iverson is expected to start in Sunday’s All-Star Game, according to a source close to the 34-year-old guard…

The source also indicated that Iverson would address the media tomorrow in Dallas, the host city of the All-Star Game, and that Iverson intends to return to the Sixers after the all-star break, when they host the Miami Heat on Tuesday.

Iverson has a sick child and has been missing games to take care of her, with the team’s blessing.

The fans wanted to see him and voted Iverson as a starter in the East — I don’t get it, but people love Dancing With The Stars and I don’t get that either. For that reason, it’s good he plays. And it’s always been entertaining to watch AI play, even if you questioned whether his style made him a good teammate or not. Or if you wanted him on your team or not.

Iverson should play, and have a good time. He’s got some things to deal with upon his return to the team.

    Hope AI’s daughter is on the road to recovery. It’s got to be terrible to have a sick child and feel that one needs to be available to care for her. AI is still a great player, a wonderful father, husband, and he has grown in stature as a person since his entre into the NBA in ’96. Whenever he returns will be a great day of the 76ers!

    If the game doesn’t mean anything… if it’s all about personal stats and glory… if it’s all about looking good and not caring what your teammates do — then Iverson is your man!
