And so, it begins. Allen Iverson feels healthy, and says he’s ready to take the court for the Memphis Grizzlies: “Allen Iverson says he’s ready to run with the Grizzlies if the trainers give him permission. And MRI results put Iverson closer to his goal Thursday morning when he was cleared to participate in a full-contact practice. But while Griz coach Lionel Hollins said the workout was encouraging, his understanding is that Iverson’s return is targeted for Monday when the team plays at Sacramento. ‘I felt good,’ Iverson said. ‘It was a regular day of practice for me. I didn’t feel any pain. I didn’t feel fatigued to not be able to get through it. I’m ready to play. It’s up to them.”‘
