New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin will not play in tonight's game due to a sore right knee. Lin will rest the knee and as a result, will miss his third straight game.
The Knicks will head to Atlanta to play the Hawks, the same team Coach Mike Woodson ran for six seasons. The Knicks will likely have Baron Davis in the starting lineup, and he will have to contain the explosive Jeff Teague.
However, even with Lin out of the lineup the Knicks have been winning games and are coming off an impressive one over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. With Davis in the lineup, the Knicks will have a slower guard, but one who has a history of running the offense well.
