Woodson 'absolutely' not looking for a PG

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- After news broke that Jeremy Lin would likely be out for the rest of the season, and even the playoffs, Mike Woodson was asked if he would look for outside help at point guard.

At first, Woodson said he would discuss the possibility of signing someone with Glen Grunwald. Then, a couple of days later at practice, he suggested the Knicks would go with what they had. That meant Baron Davis, Toney Douglas and Mike Bibby running the team, with J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert splitting some floor-general duties.

After Saturday's practice at the team's training facility, Woodson took it one step further addressing any potential additions.

"Absolutely not. No, not at all," he said. "We've got enough good point-guard play in Baron and Bibby and Toney, and I can move [Shumpert] to the point if I need to. That's plenty I think to get the job done. They've just got to be committed and be willing to work on both ends of the floor to make it happen."

The Knicks' outing in Orlando on Thursday night must have closed the door shut on any moves. Not only did Davis finish with five assists and only one turnover, but Smith, off the bench, had nine assists and only one turnover as well. In addition, Douglas had his best game in more than two months with 15 points, six assists and two turnovers.

There are probably some fans who are thinking, Well, we haven't really played anyone very good recently. That changes tomorrow against the Bulls. How the Knicks' point guards do against the second-best defense in the league (88.8 points per game allowed) could cause Woodson to re-examine his outlook. That could also mean Woodson providing more defense -- not just on the court -- for his second unit.
