Billups Update

From DETNEWS | Weblog | Pistons Blog:

Very little has changed regarding Chauncey Billups' status for Game 4. After around the clock therapy, which isn't doing much for his disposition, the strained right hamstring is feeling better. Still, though, Billups couldn't say for sure whether he will be ready to play. He wouldn't even say that he was 'optimistic.'

Physical therapist Arnie Kander said Billups remains on target to play Saturday, though. He said the fact that Billups felt better and not worse on Day 2 of the recovery was a positive sign.

Billups said he would get up some shots Friday, but he wouldn't fully test the leg until Saturday morning. So, it's still a 50-50 proposition whether he'll play at this point."

    If he plays that would be to our advantage,having an injured player testing out a hammy in a huge playoff game cant be good for them when it comes to how we play. It'll be tough for him if he plays,i think he sits this one out and tries to get himself ready for game 5.

    Yeah, Game 5 isn't until Tuesday night; that would be a chance for Billups to get three additional days of rest if he doesn't play on Saturday, so the Pistons might be smart to rest Billups for Game 4; after all, the Pistons still have the homecourt advantage.
