Billups out, Stoudemire in Knicks lineup

NEW YORK -- The Knicks have decided that Chauncey Billups' strained right knee hasn't recovered sufficiently enough to play in Game 3 of the Celtics' first-round Eastern Conference series against New York, ruling the point guard out for Friday night's game. Knicks' forward Amar'e Stoudemire, who has been battling a pulled muscle in his back, was in the Knicks' starting lineup.

"We were pretty sure he was not playing and we were ready either way," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "It doesn’t change our gameplan honestly. We’re going to play the same regardless of who plays."

Stoudemire, Billups are game-time decisions

Knicks stars Amar'e Stoudemire and Chauncey Billups did not participate in active practice for the second straight day, retreating to the trainer's room during the team's shootaround on Friday, according to The New York Times.

Both players are game-time decisions for Friday night's Game 3 against the Celtics, although "Stoudemire is far more likely to play than Billups," The Times reported.

"We're pretty optimistic," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni told the paper about Stoudemire's pulled back muscle. As for Billups' strained left knee? "Less optimistic."

Thomas a finalist for Vezina Trophy

Tim Thomas was named as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy on Friday, an award honoring the top goaltender in the NHL.

Thomas -- who won the Vezina in 2009 -- is one of three finalists, joining Roberto Luongo of the Canucks and Pekka Rinne of the Preadtors. 

Thomas is considered the overwhelming favorite to capture his second Vezina following a 2010-11 season that saw the netminder set the NHL record for single-season save percentage with a mark of .938, besting the previous record of .937 set by Dominik Hasek in the 1998-99 season. Thomas had a record of 35-11-9 in 57 games, with a 2.00 goals-against average.

Shaq appears at morning shootaround

Shaquille O'Neal was on the court for the Celtics at their morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden, but he still isn't ready to play in a game. "He’s not ready to play yet but the fact that he’s feeling better and he’s closer, you just bring him on the road," Doc Rivers said. O'Neal spoke briefly as he left the court and said that he's trying to make it back. 

Once again Rivers indicated that Shaq will play when he is physically able. "I’m worried about getting him right and healthy," Rivers said. "There’s no strategic gameplan for not playing him. There’s a medical gameplan for not playing him. Once he can play, he can play." 

In other O'Neal injury news, Jermaine O'Neal said he aggravated his left wrist taking a charge in Game 2. He was wearing a brace the last two days but said he would probably play without it Friday night because the swelling has gone down....
