From ESPN, Stephon Marbury remains a possibility for tonight, but Eddy Curry's availability is now in question.

Marbury wasn't at the day's shootaround, three days after his father died during the Knicks' home loss to Phoenix. Coach Isiah Thomas said he wouldn't know his starting point guard's plans until later in the day.

"That would be his choice," Thomas said. "If he felt that he was able to play emotionally, then we would let him play."

Curry sprained his left ankle while running during the morning shootaround. The Knicks probably won't know if their starting center will be available until shortly before the game.

If Marbury does travel to New Jersey, Thomas would let him decide if he wanted to play. Don Marbury's funeral is Thursday morning in Brooklyn.

We probably won't know anything for sure until game time (Nets, 7:30), but I'll keep my ear to the ground. And if that doesn't work, I'll check online.
