Iverson returns to practice

The 76ers practiced tonight at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and guard Allen Iverson was back on the floor. It was the Sixers first practice since losing at the Toronto Raptors on Feb. 10. Iverson hadn't played or practiced with the Sixers since a win over the New Jersey Nets on Jan. 31.
