Mike Woodson may change the starting lineup tonight based on an injury.

Carmelo Anthony wasn’t at shootaround today due to a stomach virus, but Woodson said,
“I’m pretty positive he’s going to play.”

It's backup point guard Pablo Prigioni, who is a game-time decision against the Warriors due to back spasms. If he can’t play, Woodson will bring Jason Kidd off the bench and start someone else. Woodson said he doesn’t know who it will be yet.

If Prigioni can play, Woodson will stick with the same starting five.

Woodson also said it’s a “good possibility,” Kenyon Martin will make his debut tonight. The Knicks signed him to a 10-day deal on Saturday.
