Chauncey Billups Injures Groin

by December 17, 2009

The injury, according to George Karl and Billups, shouldn’t keep the point guard out of action for too long: “Early in the third quarter Wednesday night, Chauncey Billups ambled toward the locker room, untucked his jersey, peered at his parents in the stands and shrugged his shoulders in frustration. Billups suffered a strained left groin in the Nuggets’ 111-101 win against Houston, and coach George Karl said his point guard could be out ‘a couple games.’ While leaving the Pepsi Center during the fourth quarter, Billups said: ‘It’s hurting, but I’ll be all right. I’m going to get an MRI to make sure it’s not too bad.’ The Nuggets should know today the severity of the injury, which Billups suffered in the second quarter.”
