New York Knicks point guard Chauncey Billups will undergo an MRI on his left knee. Posted by Ben Golliver.

On Sunday, we noted that New York Knicks point guard Chauncey Billups left Game 1 with a left knee strain, an injury that kept him out of practice on Monday and will officially keep him out of Game 2 on Tuesday night.'s Ken Berger reported that "Billups says when he took off on his left leg, it 'buckled. ... It just kind of gave out on me.'" reports that Billups will undergo an MRI on his knee on Wednesday. "Of course there's concern," Billups told "Tomorrow, hopefully I'll have a better idea of what's going on."

The MSG Network also reported that Billups "is walking MUCH better, feels better but told me he'll have an MRI tomorrow in NY." Earlier Tuesday, reported that the Knicks said Billups would not undergo an MRI. It's unclear what changed their mind.

In Billups' place, the Knicks will turn to Toney Douglas, a second-year guard out of Florida State who is averaging 10.6 points and 3.0 assists this year.

Here's another look at the play in which Billups sustained his injury.
