GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Pablo Prigioni went through practice Monday and could make his NBA playoff debut Tuesday night.
"He looked pretty good running," Woodson said.
When the Knicks won 16 of their final 18 regular-season games, the 35-year-old rookie from Argentina played a key role with his defense, quick hands and unselfishness. The Knicks' ball movement could improve from Game 1 if Prigioni is in the lineup.
"It's nothing new," Woodson said. "Ray's guarded a little bit of everybody all year. He'll be fine. He's got to be tough. That's all I can tell you. Good luck. He's got to play."
Stiff test for Chandler
Tyson Chandler said his neck felt fine after Game 1 and that his conditioning was why he went scoreless with five rebounds in 20 minutes. He missed 15 of the last 19 games with a bulging disc in his neck.
"Obviously, I'm going to be a little stiff, a little sore here and there, but I feel great, honestly," Chandler said. "It's just when you're out for so long, you're not playing against some Park and Rec dudes, you're playing against the best of the best, and I'm trying to condition myself playing against the best of the best.
"I feel like I'll be better Game 2 than I was Game 1 and it will continue throughout the series."
