Blake Griffin (strained left hamstring), Chris Paul (bruised right kneecap) and Chauncey Billups (tendinitis in left foot) have been ruled out of Wednesday nights game against the Orlando Magic.
Though the three starters are listed as day-to-day, Griffin, Paul and Billups are targeting Friday nights game at the Miami Heat as a possible comeback game.
Coincidentally for Billups, it was exactly a year ago on this date, in a game against the Orlando Magic at Amway Center, that the 6-3 guard suffered a season-ending torn left Achilles tendon.
Thats crazy. A year to the day, Billups said. The same building. Its weird. But it is what it is. Im just happy that now Im better. I can walk and move and run and jump. Its a long road, but Im much better.
Billups returned from that injury in late November and played in three games.
But he has missed the last 34 games with the tendinitis.
Adding some irony for Billups, he was playing three-on-three Tuesday with Clippers head athletic trainer...
