Allen Iverson, Chauncey Billups Likely to Play this Weekend

Detroit guard Allen Iverson was not available for Wednesday’s game against Toronto because Chauncey Billups, one of three players traded to Denver in exchange for Iverson, has not completed his physical with the Nuggets.

Rodney Stuckey started for the Pistons, who also sent top reserve Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb to Denver in Monday’s trade. McDyess and Samb were not required to report to Denver.

Billups was not expected to play for Denver in its road game against Golden State later Wednesday.
