Knicks Billups Questionable, Stoudemire Day-To-Day

NEW YORK (AP/CBS) — The New York Knicks say Chauncey Billups is questionable for Game 3 of their playoff series with a strained left knee and Amare Stoudemire is day-to-day with a back injury.

Both players had MRI exams Wednesday while the team took a day off following two losses to the Boston Celtics. Billups’ test confirmed a strained tendon, which forced him to miss Game 2 after he was hurt on a drive to the basket near the end of the series opener.
