Woodson did offer a glimpse into his thinking while speaking with reporters Wednesday at a Garden of Dreams event.
The coach said Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony and Raymond Felton will be in his starting five.

I don't think JR will start, even when he's healthy, which he probably won't be at the start of the season.
I would say

It'll be interesting to see who out of Bargnani/Amare/JR is healthiest on opening Night. My money is on JR.
I saw Bargnani torch Indiana this year. He can definitely score, but his defense is suspect at best. Felton/Smith/Shump/Melo/Chandler are gonna play 30+ a night, so it makes sense to start 'em.
Plus, I think you gotta give JR some responsibility, and Bargnani/Udrih/Amare/Hardaway/Leslie/Tyler is going to give you tons of bench fire power.

'Melo is a force as the 4, Smith is better as a bench player and Shump needs to lock down the 2.

Thing is Woodson not only loved Melo at the 4 but also the two PG alignment. That would mean either Prigs or Udrih at the 2 which pushes Shump either to the 3 or to the bench which could be troublesome once JR returns and you try to find minutes for the both of them.
Someone's gonna be the odd man out. I also think Hardaway is gonna have to impress a good amount early or he's completely out of the rotation.
The odd man out could be between Kenyon, Bargs, MWP and Amare. Provided they are all healthy I can't see all 4 of them seeing the floor a good amount. Of course, if Amare goes down that sort of figures things out by itself. Doubt Tyler (who I was much more impressed with than Leslie in SL) gets a lot of PT either.
I'd guess Woody ends up with:
Prigs (possibly Udrih too)
