Sixers' Andre Iguodala Expected to Miss Game vs. Knicks

Written By Roy Burton On Saturday, November 06, 2010

Andre Iguodala's disappointing season gets worse.



Philadelphia 76ers' forward Andre Iguodala strained his right Achilles' tendon during Friday night's 123-116 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and will miss Sunday's game against the New York Knicks.

Iguodala's injury, which caused him to miss the entire second half of the Cavaliers' game, brings to an end his streak of 252 consecutive regular season games -- the second-longest active streak in the NBA behind Derek Fisher at 297 games.

In his six-plus seasons, Iguodala has played in 492 out of a possible 498 games.

With Iguodala out of the lineup, rookie Evan Turner will get his first regular season start when the Sixers visit Madison Square Garden on Sunday -- the first game of a five-game road trip.

Forward Andres Nocioni was also injured during last night's game (sprained ankle), but will likely suit up vs. the Knicks.
