Knicks point guard Chauncey Billups has officially been ruled out of tonight's Game 2 against the Celtics with a strained left knee. Toney Douglas, who leads the NBA in 3-pointers since the All-Star break, will start in his place.

Billups has not yet been ruled out of Game 3, but Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni told the media earlier today that Billups would be getting an MRI on his left knee tomorrow. Billups has not practiced since injuring his knee Sunday at the end of Game 1.
