Mike Woodson said Thursday that Marcus Camby “absolutely” would make his season debut Friday night against the Dallas Mavericks.

With Camby, who missed most of camp with a strained left calf, in the mix, the big-man rotation will change. Rasheed Wallace’s minutes increased last game and Kurt Thomas’ decreased.

“I got to figure that out — that’s what I’m paid to do,” Woodson said. “I’m not here to satisfy anybody. I’m here to coach this team the best way I’m capable of coaching it.”
