Iverson to play first game Monday

DENVER -- Allen Iverson is expected to make his season debut for the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night at Sacramento.

Iverson is recovering from a partial right hamstring tear and missed his third straight game when the Grizzlies played the Nuggets in Denver on Sunday night.

Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said that when Iverson returns, he'll be part of a three-guard rotation with O.J. Mayo and Mike Conley.

Iverson, traded from Denver to Detroit last season, declined to speak with reporters Sunday night, saying he'll talk when he plays in a game.
