Clippers look to move on after Billups injury

Chauncey Billups is done for the season, felled by a torn Achilles tendon. His value wasn’t just measured in numbers; he was a veteran leader and a coach on the floor, a player who knew what it took to win an NBA title because he’d done it.

Now, the Clippers must forge ahead without him. But they’ll have to decide whether their roster provides the answer or whether there’s a free agent who can be the complement to point guard Chris Paul that Billups was.

For the moment, the Clippers are still reeling emotionally. They opened a six-game road trip with victories in Washington and Orlando, but the loss of Billups — whose career may be over given the severity of his injury — has taken the joy out of their start.
