Billups done for season with torn Achilles

Los Angeles Clippers guard Chauncey Billups will miss the rest of the season after tearing his left Achilles tendon.

The injury occurred with 5:48 left in the fourth quarter of an overtime win against Orlando when Billups attempted a cross-over move, but fell to the floor without contact from another player and needed help off.

He had an MRI at the Cleveland Clinic on Tuesday which confirmed the injury and will return to Los Angeles on Thursday for further evaluation.

A date for surgery has not been determined.

In 20 starts this season, Billups posted averages of 14.9 points, 4.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 30.4 minutes a game.
