Billups is Back Tonight!


5. Billups back: Since he was lost for the season last month with a ruptured Achilles tendon, Chauncey Billups’ jersey has hung in the Clippers’ locker room on game days, home and away. Billups will actually be sitting his locker room this week as he is expected to return to the team Wednesday and be on the sideline for the game against Atlanta as he continues his rehab in Los Angeles. While he will not be able to play again this season, just his presence in the locker room and on the bench could help the Clippers as they try to break out of the funk they’ve been in since Billups left. "Hopefully he can help cheer us on when he's here," Paul said. "I hope he can help."
