BOSTON (AP) -- Chauncey Billups is expected to miss the second game of the New York Knicks' playoff series against the Boston Celtics because of a left leg injury.
Coach Mike D'Antoni said Monday the starting point guard was "very questionable'' for Tuesday night's game in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round series.
Billups was hurt in the final minute of the Knicks' 87-85 loss Sunday night. He was replaced by Anthony Carter with 51 seconds left and the game tied at 82. He said doctors told him he had strained his left knee or thigh muscle.
If Billups is sidelined, Toney Douglas is expected to start in his place.
