GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Mike Woodson hasn’t made up his mind yet, but it sounds as if he’ll start Carmelo Anthony at power forward in the Knicks’ season opener Wednesday.
“We’ve been successful here with Melo playing a lot of 4 and we haven’t experimented a whole lot with him playing [small forward] until this exhibition season,” Woodson said Tuesday. “So I just feel like I don’t want to go away from it a lot in terms of him playing at the 4 spot. But I have options.”
It looks like Carmelo Anthony will start at power forward in the season opener.
Woodson said he will announce a starting lineup Wednesday. For much of the preseason, he talked about wanting to start Andrea Bargnani at power forward and Anthony at small forward.
But his thinking has changed in recent days. Now it appears most likely that Metta World Peace will start at small forward and Anthony will start at power forward when New York opens the season at home against theMilwaukee Bucks.
