The Philadelphia 76ers have officially announced that star guard Allen Iverson will not return to the team for the remainder of the season.

Iverson has been tending to his sick daughter for the past week, and both sides reportedly agreed that it would be best for him to stay at home.

While we don't condone bailing on a star simply because his family needs him, from a fantasy basketball perspective, this makes Louis Williams roster-worthy again.

Grab Williams and stash him on your bench in the hopes that he keeps solid minutes and picks up some steam as the season winds down.

Jrue Holiday, who just dropped 23 points against Orlando on Monday night, could also be worth taking a gander at in deeper leagues.
