The Knicks host the San Antonio Spurs Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET, and Mike Woodson has confirmed that Marcus Camby will be starting at power forward for the game, via Frank Isola of the New York Daily News:

Camby will be making his first start of the 2012-13 NBA season, tand hus far he has seen action in 10 contests for the Knicks. He has averaged 8.7 minutes per game, scoring just 1.4 points and grabbing 3.3 rebounds per contest.

With Camby starting alongside Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire will continue to come off the bench for the Knicks. Stoudemire saw his first action of the season on New Year's Day, scoring six points, grabbing one rebound, and blocking one shot. Amar'e played just 17 minutes in that game, but may see increased minutes tonight.
