GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -Stephon Marbury was set to rejoin the New York Knicks' starting lineup Tuesday night, a week after he responded to a demotion by leaving the team for one game.
Marbury said he was told by coach Isiah Thomas at the beginning of the morning shootaround that he would start against the Golden State Warriors. Marbury was a reserve for three games, and the Knicks lost all of them to extend their losing streak to six.
``I'm excited about playing always, and to be able to come back home and start and get back into the flow of things is always a good thing,'' Marbury said.
