 ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -Chauncey Billups said Thursday he was still sore, a night after he was forced to leave the Pistons' loss to Orlando in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals because of a strained right hamstring.
The All-Star guard said he isn't sure if he will be ready to play in Game 4 on Saturday in Orlando. The Magic's 111-86 victory Wednesday cut the Pistons' lead to 2-1.
``Just going to take it one day at a time and see what happens,'' Billups said. ``But it's feeling sore, kind of similar to last night.''
Billups was in the trainer's room all night, and expected to be there all day Thursday. He was injured when his feet got caught up with Magic guard Jameer Nelson on a drive to the basket four minutes into the game.
``I felt a little something,'' Billups said. ``I'm just hoping it was a strain, what I felt. But I felt something in there. I never really had a hamstring like this before.''
