Nuggets guard Chauncey Billups will miss two games to give his strained left groin time to heal. Billups, averaging 17.1 points and 5.7 assists, injured the groin Dec. 16 against the Rockets and sat out three straight games. The All-Star point guard returned on Christmas Day in Portland but didn't play in the second half of a 107-96 loss. The Nuggets said in an injury update that the move was "not a setback" and the goal was to avoid a "lingering problem." The Nuggets lost to the Mavericks at home on Sunday and will travel to Sacramento on Monday.

INNOVATION and coordination will be Marvin F. Billups Jr.'s two main challenges when he takes over Baltimore's troubled parks system Oct. 23. The 58-year-old division chief of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission should be up to the task: He has spent most of his working life managing parks here and in Atlanta and Charlotte, N.C. He has extensive budgeting and planning experience. As an outsider, he can take a fresh look at longstanding problems and try new approaches.

Despite having fired him two months ago, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley is keeping former parks director Marvin F. Billups Jr. on the city payroll and letting him live rent-free in a city-owned house until he finds another job. The mayor said that the informal, open-ended arrangement was a "severance package of sorts" meant to cushion the blow of the firing July 2 of Billups, who continues to receive his $99,800 salary. Such temporary assistance is not uncommon for high-ranking executives terminated from jobs in private industry, O'Malley said.

The Baltimore City Council confirmed yesterday the appointment of Marvin F. Billups Jr. as chief of the Department of Recreation and Parks.

Billups, 58, is a native of Athens, Ga., and the former parks director for Charlotte, N.C. For the past nine years, he has worked in the Prince George's and Montgomery counties park systems.

WASHINGTON - In recent years, staying close to the reigning world champions deep into the fourth quarter might have been considered a step in the right direction for the Washington Wizards. Since the Wizards have been one of the biggest surprises in the NBA and one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference this season, last night's 105-96 defeat to the Detroit Pistons at MCI Center would not qualify as anything but a disappointment. After turning a five-point halftime deficit into a five-point lead going into the fourth quarter, the Wizards reverted to their role as wanna-bes and the Pistons played with the confidence that came from taking home the trophy last season.

Trading a superstar tends to be dicey business, but for many reasons, the Denver Nuggets did a terrific job in flipping Allen Iverson for Chauncey Billups. That's not a knock on Iverson, one of the most remarkable athletes of my lifetime (most guys his size never sniff the NBA, much less average 27.7 points over 12 seasons). It's just that the Nuggets got a player who is almost as good, fits their needs better and won't bolt to another team after this season. The Nuggets have a potential big-time scorer in J.R. Smith, who happens to play shooting guard.

WASHINGTON - For most of the last month, the Washington Wizards proved themselves adept at beating the NBA's bottom feeders, which is an important step forward for a franchise that aspires not to be a bottom feeder anymore. But the Wizards haven't done quite so well with the NBA's more dominant foes, like the Minnesota Timberwolves, who knocked them off, 108-100, last night at MCI Center. After Friday's 105-86 road loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, the Wizards (18-16) got a second straight splash of cold water across the face, as the Timberwolves (27-9)
