Report: Chauncey Billups Likely Out for Game 2 Against Celtics With Knee Injury

by

After escaping Game 1 with a last-second comeback against the New York Knicks, the Celtics have received another boost to their hopes in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, as Chauncey Billups is now likely to miss Game 2 of the series for the Knicks.

According to the New York Post, Knicks head coach Mike D'Antoni has said that "the probability" is that Mr. Big Shot won't be available for Tuesday's Game 2 after straining his left knee in the final minute of the Celtics' Game 1 victory.

In his place, Toney Douglas will get the start, and Landry Fields will likely play a larger role in the offense.

Billups is expected to be ready for Friday's Game 3.
