Chauncey Billups had fluid drained from his injured left knee today and also received a cortisone shot in attempt to play in Game 3 on Friday.

"Chauncey's doing everything he can to get back out there," said a Knicks official. "This is killing him. He feels they would have won both games if he was out there at the end."

Billups was injured in the last two minutes of Sunday's Game 1 loss to Boston and did not play in Game 2.
