Mike Woodson may change the starting lineup again

Maddie Meyer

Anything to not fall down double digits in the opening minutes.

It feels like our semi-regular reports from Knicks practice have already devolved into just "which of the Amar'e Stoudemire/Kenyon Martin pair is playing?" and "who's Mike Woodson going to start without really providing a reason this time?". Well...here's that from the practice before Wednesday's game in Atlanta!

Note that Martin has yet to miss a game this season. Amar'e will be 4/7 if he really sits out Wednesday. Meanwhile, the starting lineup may change again:

I dunno, it just seems like he's flailing at this point. Doesn't sound like he'd deny that, either. We typically downplay the importance of the starting lineup, but given the way the Knicks have been opening games (even that win over the Bobcats started poorly), it's feeling more and more like Woodson has to get that opening unit right if he wants to fix anything.
