 Sixers forward Andre Iguodala will sit out his second straight game tonight when the team plays the Phoenix Suns with tendonitis in his right Achilles.

Iguodala missed five games earlier in the season with the injury but appeared to be recovered from it before it flared up again recently, forcing him to miss Monday's game in Golden State.

Guard Lou Williams joined the team this morning after witnessing the birth of his first child last night and will be available tonight. Also, swingman Jason Kapono's right calf is healed enough for him to play and he is on the active list for tonight's game. Iguodala and Darius Songaila are deactivated.
