Chauncey Billups suggested that he might continue playing in the NBA next season if his surgically-repaired knee improves sufficiently.
"The knee ... will let me know if I can come back and play, if that's an option," Billups said. He hasn't completely ruled out a return this season but it seems very unlikely since Detroit has five games remaining and Chauncey hasn't done any 5-on-5 workouts since having surgery in February. The veteran has repeatedly said he wants a job in NBA management or possibly coaching once his playing days are over. Apr 7 - 2:57 PM

Chauncey Billups (knee) admitted that he's "not sure" if he'll play again this season.

Billups recently began intense on-court workouts but he has yet to go full-court. With only seven games remaining in Detroit's disappointing season it would be a surprise to see him on the court, and it's unclear if the Pistons will exercise their $2.5 million team option to keep him next season.
Apr 3 - 9:15 AM

Chauncey Billups (knee surgery) is holding out hope that he can return this season.

While Billups has a desire to return this season, there are only 15 games left on the Pistons' schedule so the clock is ticking for the 37-year-old to return this season. "You never do know when it's going to be up," Billups said. "And obviously the older you get, the closer it gets. I would like to walk out on my own and not have to crawl out." Mr. Big Shot hasn't played since February 7 and has only played 38 minutes since the calendar turned to 2014, so his fantasy value is essentially at rock bottom even if he is able to return this season.

Chauncey Billups (knee surgery) is hoping he can return to the court this season.

While Billups hopes to return to game action after undergoing knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus last week, he also remains realistic about the fact that he may not return this season. "Father Time is undefeated, man," Billups said. The 37-year-old has only played 19 games all season, so fantasy owners shouldn't be holding out hope for any type of value from Mr. Big Shot even if he is able to return this season.

Chauncey Billups will have knee surgery to repair his right meniscus.

His season and career might not be over just yet, but it's anyone's guess as to when he'll play again. He was already sitting out back-to-backs and averaging just 16 minutes a game in his 19 appearances this year, but the plan is for him to return to action before the season is over. And for those of you saying to yourself "He's still in the NBA?," we can tell you that he shouldn't have been on any fantasy rosters this season, regardless of how deep the league.

Chauncey Billups returned to action on Friday with two points, two assists and two turnovers in nine minutes off the bench.

Billups' activity may have been prompted by Will Bynum's recent confrontation with coach Mo Cheeks, though Cheeks insisted he simply "wanted to play Chauncey." It's nice to see Billups back in action after battling a sore knee for most of the season, but he's unlikely to play in the second of back-to-back games on Saturday and he's not a fantasy option in his current role.
Feb 8 - 6:09 PM

Pistons head coach Mo Cheeks said Chauncey Billups "probably" wouldn’t play on Wednesday.

The 37-year-old veteran only logged eight minutes on Tuesday against the Knicks and is expected to sit out the second game of back-to-back contests. Billups doesn’t produce enough at this stage of his career to warrant fantasy consideration in standard leagues.
Jan 8 - 6:02 PM

Chauncey Billups will not play against the Magic on Friday.

The Pistons are on a back-to-back set and Billups is expected to play Saturday vs. the Wizards. He only played 16 minutes on Monday and the Pistons will have no problem giving Will Bynum some extra playing time tonight.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 05:39:00 PM

Chauncey Billups returned to action on Wednesday and had six points, one rebound, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes.

He's still not playing in back-to-back games and can be randomly benched at any time for the Pistons. Given his lack of consistent playing time, there's no reason to consider owning Billups at this point.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 11:37:00 PM

Chauncey Billups will not play on Monday night against the Pacers.

He played 17 minutes against the Blazers on Sunday and the team continues to keep him out in back-to-back sets. Billups has almost no fantasy value.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 06:21:00 PM

Chauncey Billups is active for Friday's game against the Nets.

He received a night off on Wednesday after returning to the lineup on Tuesday with 18 minutes of action. Billups missed 14 games this season due to a knee injury and his 37-year-old frame will need plenty of rest as the season progresses. Fantasy owners should be able to come up with a better idea than adding Billups.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 06:09:00 PM

Chauncey Billups will get a night off on Wednesday.

He played 18 minutes in his return to action on Tuesday night. Billups is playing just 21.6 minutes per game and this won't be the last time he gets a night off in his age-37 season.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 06:56:00 PM

Chauncey Billups returned to action on Tuesday and had seven points and five assists in 18 minutes.

This was his first action since Nov. 11 and it's hard to see him being worth owning in any fantasy league this season.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 02:05:00 AM

Chauncey Billups (knee) will play against the Timberwolves on Tuesday.

Billups hasn't played in almost a month, so he should not be expected to play a significant amount of minutes on Tuesday as he'll most likely come off the bench. It's nice to see Mr. Big Shot healthy again, but his glory days are behind him and fantasy owners can feel free to look elsewhere.
Tue, Dec 10, 2013 11:29:00 AM

Chauncey Billups (knee) practiced on Friday and said he is close to returning, but he still isn't quite ready.

Billups is far removed from his days of being a fantasy stud, and is now simply trying to accommodate himself in a reserve role. With Brandon Jennings at the helm of the Pistons offense, you'd have to be in an extremely deep league for Billups to be a fantasy asset.
