Felton has a fractured finger, headed back to NYC for next course of action. Just heard on Knicks postgame.

I don't like him but that's not good.

Knicks need to pick up a PG.

How big of an acquisition has JR proven to be? He still takes some bad shots and plays crappy defense, but there aren't many players more dangerous off the bench than he.

I always thought JR was gonna be a superstar if he left the Nuggets because it was Melo and AI's team at the time. Of course that time has passed, but I don't even consider him a bench option. He is clearly the team's 3rd best player thus far behind Melo and Chandler.

Also liked what I saw from Copeland, except his foul troubles.

Novak took only 3 shots in 28 mins. He's been MIA the last four or five games. All these injuries are starting to piss me off. I just want to see this lineup do what it really can.

Felton being out is fine. Prigioni will get more time. Kidd can run the offense. What I did like was Chandler shooting the ball and not just looking for dunks and tip ins. He needs to do that more. Make a team respect he might pop out slightly and hit a jumper off the pick and roll. Sure, him rolling hard is big, but the threat is nice.

That's something I hope Amare can bring. Kurt Thomas can do it, but he's too old to rely on for a long time. Amare doing that and Melo racking up the points would be the best thing. Amare needs to take a page from Bosh. That would be what this team needs. Rebound, set screens, and hit open shots.

It hurts extra because it would definitely be in the Knicks best interest to keep the miles on Kidd's legs at a minimum, he's going to need to play a big role in the playoffs.

Prigioni and White will get more time. This helps in the sense now that the Knicks won't need to cut the roster when Amar'e comes back (which will also take a bit of a load off the guards) as far as I know.

Don't really think the Knicks need to go out there and spend assets or extra money to bring in another point-guard. Just run some extra sets with JR or 'Melo running the floor.

Losing Felton is going to hurt big-time. Despite pulling off the win last night due to JR's heroics, I think Felton was truly missed on the floor. But I'm a Felton lover, and I'm sure BroadwayBlues disagrees with my analysis here

His overall defense isnt crappy. If anything, he's above average. At least this season. I've lost count how many times Smith has hustled back to cause a turnover or block a gimme layup.

Sixth among SG in steals (1.28)
12th among SG in blocks (0.41)

Sacramento is actually worse than the Knicks in rebounding. Hopefully not a trap game.

I understand not putting minutes on kidd, but I think this allows them to see what prigioni can do. Give him a larger role. He is used to it in europe

i can't believe im saying this but good thing new york has the knicks doing so well right now or else the new york city sport scene would look completely depressing. of course i could've added the rangers with the knicks too if there wasn't a lockout in the way.

Toronto is shopping Kyle Lowry. I would be very interested in him or Calderon.

Imagine if we traded Lin++ for Lowry instead of letting him walk for nothing.

One of the reasons why I think Kidd is playing so much is that Woodson doesn't trust Prigioni.
With the Felton injury, I'm hoping Prigioni shows enough that Woodson trust him enough and lighten the load with Kidd.

Rumor is against Portland for Stat, and a little longer for Shumpert.

Prigioni is fine but can't score at all. Won't even attempt to finish a drive and has no jumper. He's fine as a third option but I don't want him playing 20 minutes per night.

Played basketball for the first time in years today. And I mean literally years, not exaggerating. It was brutal. Was shooting like Felton out there 1 for 5 from beyond the arc (the only 5 shots I took in two games )
