Tonight our Knicks face the Celdicks in their 2nd preseason game. Will Amarknee step on the court? And what about Camby? The game will be played in Hartford, CT, his hometown.

Think both are a no but could bne wrong, pretty sure Camby was already ruled out of first 2 preseason games, and Stat said he could play if needed but it's just preseason so he's not going to, they are trying to break up the blood in the knee... hate to be a dick cuz I agree with the "it's just preseason lets not risk anything" thought, but dude, you banged knees, it hurts, we've all been there, but we all swore, got up and played on. I don't want him hurt, but feel these games are valuable developing chemistry in standings free settings. If he doesn't get his bitch ass in there we'll have great chemistry without Stat, then back to the old "oh now stats back how do we incorporate him without sacrificing whats been going good"

$100 million uninsured knees... Rest up Stat. There is still so much time in preseason.

The season is a marathon not a sprint.

While I really think Stat and Melo need to be in real game situations as much as possible so they can continue to build chem.. We do have almost a week til our next pre season game. So I guess it would be best to let him sit this one out and heal up

I hope his knee is well, Jeremy Lin had a bruised knee but with further testing he had a partially torn meniscus...

That's actually a very good point you raise -- has the team ordered any testing on Amar'e's knee yet? Anyone know? If not, maybe they should. Esp. after Lin's issue, they shouldn't just assume it's a bruise and nothing more. God forbid there is something there, say similar to Lin, best to take care of it now, no? I remember reading "bone bruise" but don't remember reading "x-rays negative" & "MRI was clean."

Amare's out, Camby's out. White, both Smith bros, Sheed, Brewer and obviously Shump are all out for tonight's game...

I know it's only preseason and so many are sitting out across the league. But that list above is an absolute joke with the amount of injuries.

Wanted to see Amar'e play and see if there is any noticeable difference to his game. But i guess not!

Guess ill just have to watch Kidd again.

James White is gonna start tonight I hear

Yep Flight White to start being reported, and guys, relax, Stat banged knees with Copeland, hurts but he'll be fine. The Lin bruised knee turning into torn meniscus is a joke, it was incorrectly reported as bruised knee (whether or not you are conspiracy theorist about the mri being day after playoff tix sales) it would be caused by a different type of thing

Here are the base-players Knicks-fans should want to see perform for 24 minutes of playingtime in the first 3 preseason games ....

1) Brewer, Ronnie
2) Copeland, Chris
3) Felton, Raymond
4) Novak, Steve
5) Prigioni, Pablo
6) Shurna, John
7) Sims, Henry
8) Smith, Chris
9) Smith, J.R.
10) Thompson, Mychel
11) White, James
12) Bellfield, Oscar

For those who are not optimistic (Now) watch HOF PG-Jason Kidds passing-skills (at age 39 in) this game .. Kidd & Stat are a matching tandem for a great season.

Woody is looking to find a decent-long-bench out of these preseason games

Prigs is great, solid ROY candidate IMO.

I absolutely agree. He's going to be a polished playmaker.

Oct 13, 2012, 19:22
Wow. Green can play. It seems like he hasn't lost a step even after 1 year away from the NBA.

Even though our shooting is pretty horrible it's good to see everyone hitting the boards, pretty impressed with Novak and Felton in this area especially, even though our best rebounders are out.

LMAO! The Celtics commentator just said that he doesn't see any difference from Melo.

Melo's ability to draw fouls is great! PP on 4 fouls already

We need another scorer in the team. When Melo goes out, it just seems like a drag on the offensive end.

Felton is gonna make a lot of ppl forget Lin quick. Dude is always looking around and understands how to get the defense off balance.

amare and jr will surely make up for when anthony goes out

but this game looks like the same team we always put out when we played the celtics the last couple years

When we are at full strength Stat and JR will fill those lulls... Shump as well.

Felton: 7p/7a/6r in 22 minutes is really solid, loving his hunger and all around contributions

Oct 13, 2012, 20:31
really like the kidd priggi combo, 2 guys that can pass the rock well and will be dangerous when they can get their timing and shot down come season time

id prefer JR comming off the bench with novak so that we get some offense from the perimeter

we have enough offensive guys in the starting lineup

Yeah, I hear you. But it is inevitable that STAT will go down with an injury during the season, and we'll need to get scoring from other players. Right now, I only see Felton, JR, and Melo who can create their own shots.

prigioni on fire

BIG APPLE SPORTS

Prig is looking like he should be our #2 PG right now.

Kidd maybe needs to be off ball.

prigioni just running circles around the celtics bench, hes super fast for his age and i think has good chemistry with our bench guys

COPESANITY... Holy **** this is the best I've seen copeland play yet.. by far...

Prigs is a really underrated pickup, Copeland looking pretty solid in this last part of the game, proving he wants a spot.
