New, comments

The Clippers have been rolling since picking up Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups to team with their talented young guys. Of course, as fate would have it, they are still the Clippers.

Chauncey Billups Injures Achilles Tendon, May Be Done For Season - SBNation.com

Chauncey Billups suffered an Achilles tendon injury in the fourth quarter of the Los Angeles Clippers' overtime victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday, and according to HoopsWorld's Steve Kyler, several members of the Clippers hinted that Billups may have suffered a tear and was "done." If he did suffer a tear, he could be sidelined for a full calendar year.

Most teams I would assume could overcome this setback and move forward. The Clippers? Well, we'll see.

In other league injury news, Carmelo Anthony suffered an injured groin. Not clear how long he'll be out.

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony suffered a strained right groin in the first quarter of Monday's 99-88 win against the Utah Jazz and did not return to the court. He will be reevaluated on Tuesday. Anthony appeared to injure his groin after throwing an alley-oop to Tyson Chandler midway through the first quarter.

At least we aren't the only ones that get hurt.
