Lillard, who has appeared in every game so far this season, is expected back after having his right hand examined Friday. He was diagnosed with a sprain in his middle and ring finger, but is good to go tonight. Lillard underwent an x-ray, but that came back negative for any fractures. 

The Trail Blazers have taken control over the Northwest Division with a 15-5 record, whereas the Knicks have struggled to find their way this year, staying out of last place by virtue of the 2-18 Philadelphia 76ers. 

So far this season, Lillard leads the Trail Blazers with 6.5 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
