Pablo Prigioni (toe) could start against the Nets on Monday in his return from injury.
"I havenít made that decision on which way to go,íí coach Mike Woodson said after Sundayís practice. "Iím going to sleep on it and make a decision tomorrow." The move would bump the struggling Iman Shumpert to the bench and the Knicks would go to a two-point guard lineup. The Knicks have some solid offensive and defensive splits with Prigioni on the court vs. when he's off, so it's not a bad idea to give him more burn. He's still only on the radar in deep leagues.Mike Woodson said that moving Andrea Bargnani to the bench is a "possibility," as it would allow Carmelo Anthony to start at power forward.
"I know we were great last year with Melo at [power forward]," Woodson said. "Youíll probably see more four now that [Kenyon Martin and Amare Stoudemire] are out. Bargnani could possibly come off and back up Tyson [Chandler] at the center spot." In two games as a reserve this season, Bargs averaged just 9.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 26 minutes of action.
