AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -Chauncey Billups is not expected to play for the Detroit Pistons in Game 5 against the Orlando Magic because of a strained right hamstring.
Billups was hurt early in Game 3 and did not play the following game, which the Pistons won to take a 3-1 lead in the second-round series.
The All-Star point guard went through a strenuous workout confined to a 15-foot area on Monday, the day before Game 5. Billups was replaced by rookie Rodney Stuckey and veteran Lindsey Hunter on Saturday.
