Los Angeles Clippers guard Chauncey Billups is out indefinitely due to peroneal tendinitis in his left foot, the team announced on Wednesday night.

Billups missed Wednesday's game against the Dallas Mavericks.

Billups returned from a torn left Achilles last week and started three games. His latest ailment is unrelated to the Achilles injury.

"It's frustrating, of course, working that hard to come back and have to kind of sit back and wait,” Billups said. “I know what it is. I respect the process and I’m not down at all. Of course, I want to be out there, but it is what it is. It’s all about the marathon for me.”

Willie Green returned to the starting lineup in Billups' absence.
