Billups,, 35, vows return from season-ending injury
CLEVELAND — Chauncey Billups will only watch as the Clippers continue their promising season without him.
Billups tore his Achilles tendon, prematurely ending his first season with Los Angeles and 15th in the NBA. He won’t let it be his last.
“My career is definitely not over,” the 35-year-old said. “I’m not going to crawl out of this league. I’m going to go out on my own two feet. I will be back.”
Billups‘ season came to a stunning end in Orlando on Monday night, when he crumpled to the floor without being touched. After missing a 3-pointer in the fourth quarter, Billups took one step toward the loose ball when his leg buckled.
Francis, 31, has struggled since he missed the 2009 season because of shoulder surgery. Last season, he was 6-16 for Kansas City with a 4.82 ERA in 31 starts.
