Wrist injury to sideline Chauncey Billups
DENVER -- Nuggets point guard Chauncey Billups will miss the game Tuesday night against the Orlando Magic after aggravating his sprained right wrist.
Billups played with a partially torn ligament in his shooting wrist for the last two weeks after injuring it against New Jersey on Nov. 20 when he collided with Nets forward Stephen Graham.
He sat out two games and returned Nov. 28, when he scored a season-high 25 points against Phoenix.
Billups aggravated the injury when he was hit during Denver's win in Toronto on Friday night. He was evaluated by a team doctor and a hand specialist Tuesday. He's listed as day-to-day.
Billups is averaging 14.4 points and 5.4 assists in 21 games this season.
