J.R. Smith (sore knee) is expected to play on Thursday despite sitting out portions of Wednesday's practice.Marc Berman of the New York Post speculates that a "blowout loss" to the Nets on Thursday "could trigger changes -- whether via trade or a coaching move."
The Knicks are riding a nine-game losing streak and they've dropped seven straight at home, and Berman opines that a loss to rival Brooklyn may push owners James Dolan to the breaking point. Jeff Van Gundy and Lionel Hollins are mentioned as possible replacement coaches if Woodson is indeed fired mid-season, but we'll reiterate that this is pure rumor and speculation.
