Description: Pistons guard Chauncey Billups is out indefinitely after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last week.
Insight: The 37-year-old Billups will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks and may not return this season. He wasn't helping fantasy owners at his current production level (3.8 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 2.2 apg) so this won't change much.
 
2/7/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Pistons guard Chauncey Billups is questionable for Friday's game against Brooklyn.
Insight: The 37-year-old Billups' days of being a useful fantasy contributor appear to be over. He hasn't played in almost a month and even then was used sparingly.

Insight: The 37-year-old generally sits out the second game of back-to-backs. Billups' days of being a useful fantasy contributor appear to be over.
 
12/10/2013 2:02:00 PM
Description: Detroit guard Chauncey Billups (knee tendinitis) is expected to play on Tuesday night, according to beat writer Keith Lanlois.
Insight: Injuries have limited the five-time All-Star to just seven games this season so he'll likely be rusty and fantasy owners should not start him yet.
 
11/29/2013 6:06:00 PM
Description: Detroit guard Chauncey Billups is still out with knee tendinitis. SOURCE: Keith Langlois, Pistons.com
Insight: He'll sit out Friday against the Lakers. Injuries have limited the five-time All-Star to just seven games this season.

Description: Pistons guard Chauncey Billups won't be available Monday against Milwaukee. SOURCE: Dave Pemberton, Oakland Press
Insight: Billups is still day-to-day with knee tendinitis. Even when he's played this season, he hasn't been a fantasy asset (5.3 ppg in seven contests).
 
11/25/2013 10:25:00 AM
Description: Detroit guard Chauncey Billups is questionable for Monday's game against Milwaukee due to his ongoing knee tendinitis.
Insight: There's no timetable for Billups' return. Injuries have limited the five-time All-Star to under 23 mpg even when he's on the court and he's not producing many fantasy-worthy performances. Time to look elsewhere for guard help.
 
11/24/2013 10:55:00 AM
Description: Detroit guard Chauncey Billups is questionable for Sunday's game against Brooklyn due to his ongoing knee tendinitis.
Insight: There's no timetable for Billups' return. Injuries have limited the five-time All-Star to under 23 mpg even when he's on the court and he's not producing many fantasy-worthy performances.
 
11/22/2013 10:44:00 AM
Description: Detroit guard Chauncey Billups is questionable for Friday's game against Atlanta due to his ongoing knee tendinitis.
Insight: There's no timetable for Billups' return. Injuries have limited the five-time All-Star to under 23 mpg even when he's on the court and he's not producing many fantasy-worthy performances.
 
11/19/2013 6:54:00 PM
Description: Detroit guard Chauncey Billups won't be active for Tuesday's game against New York. SOURCE: Oakland Press
Insight: Knee tendinitis is the reason for his absence. There's no timetable for Billups' return. Injuries have limited the five-time All-Star to just 49 games over the past three seasons.
 
11/19/2013 11:09:00 AM
Description: Chauncey Billups is doubtful for Tuesday's game against New York due to knee tendinitis.
Insight: He averaging a career-low 5.3 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 2.4 apg and can't be depended on to be on the floor every night. It's best to avoid him if possible.
 
7/11/2013 10:30:00 AM
Description: Chauncey Billups is coming back to Detroit. The five-time All-Star has inked a two-year, $5 million deal to return to the team he won a championship with in 2004. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: Billups was never fully healthy with the Clippers, which would explain why he set a career low in scoring this past season (just 8.4 ppg in 22 contests). Detroit's backcourt is pretty weak so even if Chauncey is half the player that he once was, it would be an improvement. Of course, the injury-prone combo guard will have to stay healthy in order for that to happen.
 
4/16/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Chauncey Billups (groin) said he would be ready to go on Tuesday, though we reserve our opinion until after the morning shootaround.
Insight: Even if he returns, it will only be as a playoff tuneup. He won't have much fantasy value as he's likely to have his minutes severely limited.
 
4/13/2013 11:05:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Chauncey Billups (groin) practiced Thursday but was still held out of Friday's game and could miss Saturday as well.
Insight: Billups practiced Tuesday as well but didn't play Wednesday. Even if he returns this season, it will only be as a playoff tuneup. He won't have any fantasy value.
 
4/11/2013 5:22:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Chauncey Billups (groin) practiced Thursday but is doubtful for Friday's game.
Insight: Billups practiced Tuesday as well but didn't play Wednesday. Even if he returns this season, it will only be as a playoff tuneup. He won't have any fantasy value.
 
4/10/2013 11:34:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Chauncey Billups returned to practice on Tuesday and could play on Wednesday against the Timberwolves.
Insight: He's been out with a groin injury. Even if he returns before the playoffs, he won't make for much of a fantasy option as the team will likely limit his minutes.
 
4/6/2013 8:09:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chauncey Billups will miss Sunday's game.
Insight: He's out with a groin injury. Billups has played in fewer than half of the team's games this season and the Clippers have plenty of other guards at their disposal. Even if he returns before the playoffs, he won't make for much of a fantasy option.
 
3/30/2013 7:46:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chauncey Billups won't be on the floor Saturday against Houston.
Insight: He's out with a groin injury. Billups has played in fewer than half of the team's games this season and the Clippers have plenty of other guards at their disposal. Willie Green (6.0 ppg) and Jamal Crawford (16.6 ppg) should benefit the most from Billups' absence.
 
3/30/2013 10:33:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Chauncey Billups (groin) is expected to miss Saturday's game against Houston.
Insight: Billups re-aggravated the groin Wednesday. He had 11 points and three treys in 13 minutes , but now may miss the rest of the regular season.
