DETROIT (AP) -The Detroit Pistons expect to find out how serious Allen Iverson's back injury is later this week.
Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said Monday the team will know more about Iverson's status on Wednesday after he is examined by doctors at Georgetown, where he starred in college.
Iverson will be out for a third straight game Tuesday night when Detroit hosts the Denver Nuggets, marking the return of Chauncey Billups.
While the Pistons have struggled since trading for Iverson early in the season, Billups has helped the Nuggets flourish.
Detroit is 22-28 with Iverson in the starting lineup and 29-29 overall this season.
