Mike Woodson may have revealed his starting backcourt plans once Raymond Felton returns. More:
When talking about how his team has to endure a little more without Felton (who is targeting Saturday as his return), Woodson pointed to what the rotation may look like when Felton does return.
"Rook can play some point and JR and Melo, they're capable of handling the ball, but, you know, that's not their positions," Woodson said, "so we eventually have to get back to our original point guard and Kidd coming off the bench, Kidd and Pablo doing their jobs coming off the bench. We'll eventually get there."
So, by this thought, Woodson's plan is to have a backcourt of Felton and Iman Shumpert, who has started at the off-guard spot where Kidd had played earlier in the season. That seems like a logical move. It allows Kidd to come off the bench and play with J.R. Smith in the backcourt and also slide to the off-guard spot with Prigioni running the point.
