Billups out Wednesday, day-to-day after that

You had a feeling when a guy as hard core as Chauncey Billups used the word “severe” to describe his thigh bruise Tuesday night, he might not be playing Wednesday.

He is officially out for Hornets game Wednesday, the Knicks announced at shootaround, according to a tweet from Alan Hahn of Newsday. He is questionable for Friday.

Billups was injured with 2:13 left in the game against the Magic Tuesday night. He tried to fight over the top of a Dwight Howard pick and his thigh banged into Howard’s knee. Howard’s knee won. Billups left the game and did not return.
