    I think it is not weather he will be 100% or not. Rather, will playing have probablity of risk of getting a worse injury? if yes, sit the guy. We need him for games 5 and 6. and yes, i guess there will be game 6.

    I know how Billups feels. I pulled a hammy on the way to the fridge the other day to get another beer. It really hurts now, and I'm having trouble getting up to go to the fridge.

    Sit the guy. See if the other guys can win it. Seems like the Pistons have won games in the past where Billups has played poorly.

    He won't be 100 percent for the rest of the playoffs anyway. That is, unfortunately, a reality.

    I did pull a hammy but I'm pretty sure Billups feels worse.

    Still the same old. Arnie says he will be ready, Billups is unsure, and Flip says it will be a game time decision. Nothing worth posting.

    I have to think that he is not going to play.

    I forget, are we able to activate players during a series now?

    If Chauncey doesn't play I think Dixon will back up Stuckey.

    I would REALLY like us to win this game.

    Yes, all 3 inactive players are only out for the game in which they are inactive. Thats one new rule I like.

    Thanks, good to know.

    Even if Billups does play I can see Flip activating Dixon for more depth. He'll probably deactivate Amir :(

    I pulled a hammy last week going to my computer chair to set my fantasy lineup. Then I broke a fingernail changing my lineup. I think that explains the poor showing by my team this week. Sports can be rough. Billups needs to man up and play. I'm still hurting, but I plan to set my lineup tomorrow no matter what...

    Best news I've heard all day. Since I'd eliminated the possibility of him being healthy enough to be effective from my mind already.

    Go home 2-2 at worst or a back breaking 3-1 lead with a healthier C$ ready to go for game 5.

    It's pretty moot since we won, but Stuckey wasn't completely terrible. Although he did have 5 fouls, he didn't have any turnovers, and had a few assists and 6 points.

    The fouls will go down with experience. If we need to, we can start him again on Tuesday.

    Solid non implosive minutes are a big contribution from a Rookie on the road.

    Think about how much more we are going to get out of he and Max at the palace.


    See that girl at 31 flavors knew what she was talking about.

    The things i noticed about Stuckey is that they play off him when he doesn't have the ball and that changes the defensive spacing but he had generally good open floor decisions and crisp swing passes. He kept getting called for the whistle but i am not sure if it was because of the matchup zone thing, bad calls or bad feet.

    I think he got a lot of Rookie fouls. A few of those he was just following his man to the hoop and still got called. No respect.

    Do we start him at home and give CB another night off? Seems like the smart thing to do if we can win without him?

    he shows tons of potential to be a tremendous defender.

    Reminds me a lot of how Charlie Bell was @ MSU, so strong.

    Plus his J has been a very pleasant surprise with it's range and consistency.

    Next year he could be very special, and we might actually get the full 4 years of value out of Chauncey if we can limit his mins.
