New York, NY (Sports Network) - New York Knicks guard Pablo Prigioni is expected to play in Tuesday's Game 2 of the team's Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Boston Celtics.

Prigioni sat out New York's 85-78 victory over the Celtics in Saturday's Game 1 due to a sprained ankle he suffered in last Wednesday's regular-season finale against Atlanta. The Knicks have listed the NBA rookie as probable for Tuesday's tilt, however.

The 35-year-old Argentine started the Knicks' final 18 outings of the regular season at point guard and averaged 3.5 points, 3.0 assists and 1.8 rebounds while shooting 39.6 percent from 3-point range over 78 overall games during the 2012-13 campaign.
