Mike D'Antoni made yet another lineup -- his ninth of the season -- for Wednesday's game against the Pistons. Tracy McGrady will take over at the point guard spot, which is something D'Antoni has been wanting to see, and the impressive Bill Walker will start at the shooting guard position.

The frontcourt remains the same, with David Lee, Danilo Gallinari and Al Harrington, who will start in place of Wilson Chandler (away from the team for personal reasons).

Rodriguez is expected to remain in the rotation, but perhaps at a more suitable role as a backup point guard.
