Chauncey Billups’ Season Could be Over

Billups is doubtful for Game 4 on Sunday and hasn’t been able to run since he had blood drained from his knee on Thursday. From the NY Daily News: “Billups, who missed his second straight game Friday night with a strained left knee, did not sound optimistic that he’ll be ready in time for Game 4 Sunday. If the best-of-seven series goes the distance, Game 7 will be played a week from Sunday in Boston. Asked if that would be enough time for him to return, Billups said, ‘I think it’s maybe a chance. But I don’t know that to be 100% true. I’ll just go day to day and hopefully the cortisone hasn’t kicked in yet. But that’s just me. I’m praying for a miracle.’ Billups had blood drained from his knee on Thursday and has not been able to run since leaving Game 1 in the final minute. ‘It’s so frustrating coming here and knowing I can’t play today, it’s tough,’ he added. ‘It’s the time of season I live for. I’m just trying to do the best I can do to get back on the floor but it’s simply not ready.’”

    whats the big deal they arent going to come back from 0-3 so why risk making it a serious injury? i dont think billups is going to do that on a team that wants him to retire next year so they can chase chris paul

    I don’t know what’s the difference between having fluid drained from a knee versus having blood drained from a knee. Having blood drained from a knee sounds more serious to me. I think C-Bills is going to need surgery on that knee. C-Bills won’t be back this season.
