76ers' Holiday sits out with strained rotator cuff

76ers' Holiday sits out with strained rotator cuffCHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Philadelphia 76ers have more injury concerns ahead of Allen Iverson's debut.

Rookie guard Jrue Holiday missed Saturday's game against Charlotte after straining his right rotator cuff a day earlier in practice. Coach Eddie Jordan said Holiday was injured when he blocked teammate Willie Green's dunk attempt.

Holiday was unable to lift his arm above his head Saturday morning and underwent an MRI, which revealed the strain.

"He's going to be evaluated day-to-day," Jordan said.

The youngest player in the NBA, the 19-year-old Holiday had started the past five games since Louis Williams broke his jaw. He had a career-high 15 points in Wednesday's loss at Oklahoma City.

Jordan moved Andre Iguodala into the backcourt and inserted Elton Brand in the starting lineup against the Bobcats. Brand had come off the bench the past two games after returning from a hamstring injury.

Iverson, signed last week, is scheduled to practice with the Sixers for the first time Sunday, and make his debut Monday against Denver. Jordan again declined to say whether Iverson would start and whether Holiday's injury would factor into his decision.

"We have different mock lineups," Jordan said. "We'll have to see once we see Allen practice on Sunday and go through shootaround on Monday. We'll see how Jrue feels, a game-time decision on Monday."
