Blake Griffin (strained left hamstring), Chris Paul (bruised right kneecap) and Chauncey Billups (tendinitis in left foot) have been ruled out of Wednesday night’s game against the Orlando Magic.
Though the three starters are listed as day-to-day, Griffin, Paul and Billups are targeting Friday night’s 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.
“That’s crazy. A year to the day,” Billups said. “The same building. It’s weird. But it is what it is. I’m just happy that now I’m better. I can walk and move and run and jump. It’s a long road, but I’m much better.”
