The Atlanta Hawks face the New York Knicks on Wednesday who will be without Amare Stoudemire and may have a new starting lineup.

The Knicks arrive at Philips Arena on Wednesday carrying the weight of a 2-4 start, a premature guarantee from their owner and with an eye already on an uncertain future. To say there is a little pressure on head coach Mike Woodson would be an understatement.

The former Hawks coach is currently under fire and considering a change to his starting lineup on Wednesday. Per ESPN New York's Ian Begley, J.R. Smith or Metta World Peace could find their way into the starting lineup.

The Knicks went with a lineup featuring Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni at guard, Carmelo Anthony and Iman Shumpert at the forwards with Andrea Bargnani at center in Sunday's loss to the Spurs. Either Prigioni or Shumpert seem like good bets to head to the bench if Woodson opts to make a change.

New York will be without Amare Stoudemire on Wednesday as the Knicks continue to monitor his minutes. Kenyon Martin will be available against the Hawks.
