Great news Vinny Del Negro, you’ve got another perimeter player you need to find minutes for…

Grant Hill and his 40-year-old knees are back practicing with the team, reports Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com. He could return to the lineup Saturday when the Clippers host the Magic.

“We’ll see how he does tomorrow in practice and we’ll make that assessment how he reacts to a little more physical contact tomorrow,” Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said Monday. “He was doing all the drills today and for the past couple of weeks, so he said he feels good. But we’ve got to get him out there with some contact and obviously his rhythm and timing is off, but it won’t take him long.”

Hill has been out all season with a bone bruise in his knee. He played a couple of the Clippers exhibition games — in China against the Heat — but has been in a suit on the sidelines ever since.

Chauncey Billups is looks like he will return closer to the end of the month, Markazi reports.
