Pablo Prigioni will make his return to the New York Knicks lineup when they host the Brooklyn Nets on Monday, reports Ian Begley of ESPN. Prigioni has been out since Dec. 16 after fracturing his big toe and missed 16 games during that stretch. New York is currently on a three-game losing streak following its biggest winning streak of the season.
Prigioni has averaged 3.9 points and 3.2 assists per game with New York this season. He's shooting 43.1 percent from beyond the arc, though taking a minimal 2.4 three-point shots per game. His return should help New York's ball movement as well as offensive organization, though head coach Mike Woodson has not decided if Prigioni will start on Monday.
Brooklyn also expects to receive some much needed backcourt help with the return of Deron Williams when the cross-town rivals play. Williams has missed five games with an ankle injury and underwent treatment on both ankles. This will be the second meeting between the teams. New York currently leads the season series, 1-0.
