May 16, 2003|From Associated Press

Detroit Piston point guard Chauncey Billups might sit out Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Philadelphia 76ers because of a lingering ankle injury.

Billups underwent additional tests on his left ankle Thursday, but his status for tonight's game is unknown. The Pistons lead the series, 3-2.

"The tests came back negative, so I really don't know anything," Piston Coach Rick Carlisle said.

Atlanta Hawk forward Glenn Robinson was found guilty at Markhan, Ill., on domestic battery and assault charges for shoving his former fiancee last July.

Cook County Circuit Court Judge Christopher Donnelly sentenced Robinson to one-year conditional discharge, which is a form of probation. Robinson also was sentenced to undergo anger management counseling and complete five days of a work program run by the sheriff's office.

Team owner Bob Johnson is prepared to wait until July for Michael Jordan to decide if he wants to join Charlotte's expansion franchise.

Johnson said he recently gave Jordan his sales pitch for Jordan to come to Charlotte as a minority owner, team president, or both.

Jordan, however, told Johnson he needs time to decide his next move.
