Iguodala To Start Against Pacers

Coach Doug Collins confirmed what everybody thought would happen - that Andre Iguodala will be in the starting lineup for the 76ers in tonight's game against the Indiana Pacers at the Wells Fargo Center.

Iguodala has missed the previous seven games and 12 overall with Achilles tendinitis.

Monday's practice was the first basketball activity for Iguodala since playing in Denver on Dec. 26.

"I am not sure how long he will play," Collins said before the game. "We sure need him tonight."

Andres Nocioni, who has a dislocated middle finger on his (right) shooting hand, is also available, according to Collins.
