Chauncey Billups will be on the court for the start of the Eastern Conference Finals, whenever that may be. From Joanne Gerstner of the Detroit News:
Billups, who has missed nearly three playoff games with a strained right hamstring, said Thursday he's ready to play again.
Billups practiced almost up to capacity with the team.
"It's just good to be out there," Billups said. "My full-out sprint is not where I want it to be, but it's not like I'm that fast anyways."
If the Celtics win on the road in Cleveland (I know, I know, but it could happen) on Friday, the ECF could start on Sunday. If the Celtics and Cavs play seven games, the ECF won't start until Tuesday.
