The Los Angeles Clippers may have lost guard Chauncey Billups for the season. Midway through the fourth quarter against the Orlando Magic, Billups went down grasping at his shoe. His teammates converged on the court for several minutes before helping Billups to the bench and ultimately carrying him to the locker room.
Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro would not offer many details, except to confirm that it was an Achilles injury.
“He’s going to be re-evaluated,” Del Negro said. “He’s got an Achilles injury. I don’t know the severity of it, but it’s kind of bittersweet. We will see what happens but we will re-evaluate it tomorrow.”
