Mason Jr. or Fields to Start vs. Celtics Tonight?
With Amare Stoudemire getting a precautionary game off vs. the Celtics tonight, Coach Mike D'Antoni will move Wilson Chandler to the power forward position, thus opening up the starting shooting guard spot.
The two guard is seemingly the Knicks' deepest position, with multiple talents stepping up as they all vie for playing time. Included in this competitive pack of guards are Roger Mason Jr., Bill Walker, and rookies Landry Fields and Andy Rautins.
Kelenna Azubuike also is sure to be some heavy competition once he returns from injury as well.
As far as tonight's game goes, the starting nod seems like it could go to Mason Jr. or Fields, with Rautins possibly starting the second half.
Although Walker has been one of the most impressive (and possibly the most surprising) guards out the gate this preseason, Tommy Dee over at TKB suggests he may be better suited as a reserve.
