With the Celtics and Knicks set to face each other in the first round. The Knicks will have all of their bigs back in time to face the Celtics. When I look at the Knicks. They will be without Amare, or at least at this point. The Celtics are still small compared to the Knicks. This New York team is better then we thought, and the Celtics fell apart after chasing New York for the Atlantic title. This is the second time in three years that both teams will play each other.

Injured New York Knicks big men Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin will recover in time to play in the postseason, coach Mike Woodson said Sunday.

"They will be there, yes," Woodson said before the Knicks-Pacers game on Sunday afternoon.

There is also a chance that veteran forward Rasheed Wallace will be available in the playoffs.

"We're just going to gauge it and see how he feels tomorrow from today's workout and go from there," Woodson said.

Chandler and Martin are likely to sit out the Knicks' final two regular-season games but Woodson said both players' injuries have improved in recent days.

Chandler has missed four consecutive games and 14 of the past 18 due to a bulging disk in his neck. Martin has missed the past three games with a sprained left ankle and five of the last six.

According to Woodson, the swelling in Martin's left ankle has receded.

"We're all pleased about that," Woodson said.

Also on the injury front, Marcus Camby missed his sixth straight game with a left fascia injury. According to Woodson, Camby will be available in the postseason, which is expected to start on April 20.
