Prigioni sprained his right ankle Wednesday in the regular-season finale. Coach Mike Woodson says Saturday that Prigioni has been running and ``coming along nicely,'' but wanted to give him a few more days off.
The Knicks were 16-2 when Prigioni, a 35-year-old Argentine in his rookie NBA season, was in the starting lineup.
Copeland, also a rookie, closed the season with consecutive 30-point games and was the Eastern Conference rookie of the month for April.
