Some Saturday Lineup and Injury Updates

A few bits of information heading into Knicks-Magic.


G'day, goobers. The Knicks and Magic play in Orlando tonight at 7 PM. After shootaround this morning, we got a few updates on the Knicks' situation heading into the game:

- Though he might not be a long-term starter, particularly against smaller teams, Marcus Camby will once again start at power forward tonight. He and Tyson Chandler will match up with Andrew Nicholson and Nikola Vucevic (Glen Davis is out).

- Amar'e Stoudemire should see 20-ish minutes off the bench again. He's had zero knee complaints after a couple practices and games, but later in the week, he might sit one of New York's back-to-back games.

- This is a particularly meaningful game for Amar'e. Orlando's near his hometown of Lake Wales, FL, and he'll honor the memory of his late brother by hosting 30 kids from Lake Wales at the game.

- Rasheed Wallace is with the team, but he'll stay on the bench in a suit. I anticipate zero ties worn between Sheed and Raymond Felton.

Should be a good one tonight. The Knicks are looking to start the ball rolling on a new win streak while the Magic hope to avoid losing their eighth straight
