As first released by ESPN.com, 76ers guard Allen Iverson has decided against playing in Sunday's All-Star Game in Dallas. Iverson will be replaced on the team by David Lee of the New York Knicks.

Iverson has missed the Sixers last 5 games due to personal reasons related to the illness of his daughter. As recently as midday today, Iverson was still thought to be participating in the game, for which he was chosen as a starter by the fans.

A release is expected soon from the NBA.
