LOS ANGELES, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Los Angeles Clippers guard Chauncey Billups has torn his Achilles tendon and will be out the rest of the season, the team said Tuesday.

Billups, who was averaging 14.9 points, 4.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds this season, tore his left Achilles tendon Monday in a game against Orlando.

The 35-year-old guard collapsed to the floor while attempting a crossover move with 5:48 left in the fourth quarter of the Clippers' overtime victory.

Team officials said the tendon tear was found during a magnetic resonance imaging exam Tuesday at the Cleveland Clinic.

He was sent back to Los Angeles for further examination.
