Basketball: Billups' knee still a problem

-A A +A
By Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Toney Douglas played well when he replaced an injured Chauncey Billups during the regular season.
There’s much more at stake now.
In only his third season, Douglas said he’s prepared if, as expected, Billups, the 13-year veteran point guard, misses tonight’s Game 2 of the New York Knicks’ first-round playoff series with the Boston Celtics with a sore left knee.
Billups is “very questionable,” coach Mike D’Antoni said Monday.
If he is out, it will be up to Douglas to direct an offense led by Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony.
“I’m ready,” Douglas said Monday. “The hardest part is getting my body ready for that situation.”
Billups was hurt late in Boston’s 87-85 victory Sunday night when his leg “buckled on me.” He limped off the court with 51 seconds left and didn’t return.
“It’s really sore” he said after watching practice in street clothes. “At this point in the season, this is the worst thing that could possibly happen, getting hurt in the first game of a tough series. I know my team needs me and it’s just frustrating.”
