The Los Angeles Clippers today announced that five-time NBA All-Star guard Chauncey Billups will return to action on Wednesday, Nov. 28 against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Billups appeared in 20 games for the Clippers last season before suffering a torn left Achilles tendon on Feb. 6 in Orlando.

“We are all excited to have Chauncey back,” Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro said. “I know how hard he has worked to get to this point and we are looking forward to incorporating him into the lineup.”

LOS ANGELES – A record shooting night from beyond the 3-point line and a return from a four-game road trip were not enough to beat the New Orleans Hornets on Monday night at Staples Center.

The Clippers made a franchise-record 18 3-pointers in 35 attempts, including a career-high and franchise-record nine from Caron Butler, but the Hornets nearly matched L.A.’s prowess from beyond the arc to win, 105-98, and extend the Clippers’ season-long losing streak to four games.
