Knicks Vs. Hawks: Atlanta Changing Up Starting Lineup

Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew is making a change to his team's starting lineup to help combat the Knicks small lineup.

New York previously announced that Tyson Chandler would not play on Sunday and that Amare Stoudemire would slide over to the center position. Marvin Williams will get the start at power forward and Josh Smith will slide over to the center position to matchup with Stoudemire.

Jason Collins had been getting the starting assignments in the wake of Zaza Pachulia's foot injury. Drew wisely opted out of a potential Collins-Stoudemire matchup on Sunday.
