Clippers’ Billups May Be Out For Two Weeks With Foot Injury

7847155Oh, boy. After returning a surprise return about a week ago, the Clippers’ Chauncey Billups is back on the shelf. He sat out Wednesday’s game against Dallas (who they torched, 112-90). Now we know why.

Dan Woike of the Orange County Register has your story here.

Billups is suffering from peroneal tendinitis in his left foot. The injury is not related to his Achilles’ tendon, which he ruptured last February.

“It was something I really wanted to get checked out because I felt like I worked too hard to get back to play hurt,” Billups said. “…I knew coming back, I would deal with a lot of other things in my body that were trying to catch back up to the speed of playing in real games. I think that this is part of the process.”

The Clippers and Coach Vinny Del Negro said there’s no timetable for Billups’ return, though the injury will probably keep him out for a couple of weeks.

Just when the Clippers finally got their whole team back, well, it’s back to where they were in Opening Night. It is good news for one player, though. In the three games that Chauncey Billups has played, Willie Green earned three DNPs. Green started with Billups out and it looks like he will be starting in the foreseeable future as the Clippers wanna keep Jamal Crawford as their spark off the bench.

Before Billups returned for three games, he had an Achilles injury last season in a February game against Orlando. There were talks about retirement but he vowed to return this season. He had accomplished that but now he faces another setback. We can only hope he returns sooner than later.

Chauncey Billups averaged 7.3 points and 2.3 assists in that three-game stretch he played. Last season, he was averaging 15.0 points and 4.0 points in 20 games. He was acquired by the Clippers after he was amnestied by the New York Knicks before last season started. His veteran presence and penchant for big shots are important to the Clippers, who seem poised to make the leap this season after getting swept out of the second round in last year’s playoffs.

Billups’ pedigree is indisputable. While he’s played for seven teams, he has an NBA championship and an NBA Finals MVP in that improbable 2004 Detroit Pistons playoff run. He has also helped the Pistons go to six straight Eastern Conference Finals and went to a seventh straight conference final when he played with Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets. Billups is also a five-time all-star; three with Detroit and two with Denver.
