Billups Not Fully Recovered From Knee Injury, Will Have Second MRI
It's been exactly one month and a day since Chauncey Billups strained his left knee in Game 1 of the New York Knicks' first-round series against the Celtics, but he's still not feeling 100 percent.
"I can't get on the court and really like grind, grind," said Billups, whose injury came while driving to the lane with less than a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, and the score tied at 82. "I'm still not ready to do that, but I'm getting better though. At this point, I'm just kind of taking it easy, man."
Billups said he will be flying to New York in the next couple of weeks to have another MRI to make sure everything is healing properly.
