That's a big maybe. At Sunday morning's shootaround, George said his injured left hand is feeling pretty good and he said he might suit up tonight. Asked he would play, he said "it's a possibility." Coach Rick Carlisle, however, didn't sound too optimistic about George playing against the Knicks.
Josh Howard's sprained left wrist is getting stronger. Said Carlisle: "He's all right. He's trying to play with some pain and we appreciate that. We need him."
