Clippers’ Billups Expects to Play Next Season
Los Angeles Clippers guard Chauncey Billups won’t play Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, missing his sixth straight game and ninth of the team’s last 10 games because of a strained right groin.
Billups wasn’t sure when he would return but said it would be before the playoffs. The Clippers have only four games left in the regular season after Wednesday.
When asked if this would be his last season and potentially his last postseason, Billups shook his head.
“No,” he said. “Not at all.”
Billups, 36, has played just 20 games this season, averaging 8.2 points and 2.2 assists, while battling through a variety of injuries.
