I did not see the game and have not heard how serious this injury is. If this a type 3 strain he could be out a fairly long time, maybe even up until the playoffs. I sure hope that this is a mild strain and that he doesn't come back too soon and aggravate it before it is healed or it could become a big problem with the playoffs less than 5 weeks away. For my money I would have preferred a loss tonight rather than this injury, unless it is a very mild strain and Billups only misses a few games at the most. Flip had one great night like he is capable of, but I guarantee he will fall back into his career pattern of shooting 40%. Hopefully he can stay on the bench except when he is really needed. The Pistons got lucky tonight, with Hunter being suspended, otherwise I doubt that Flip plays more than 5 minutes. I am very glad that they got lucky, but I would feel a lot more comfortable about our chances of winning the title with C-Bill and Hunter back with Flip playing behind them.
