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.

Stoudemire was hurt while dunking during pregame warm ups Tuesday. He played most of the first half before leaving for good with back spasms, and his MRI confirmed a pulled muscle.
