Which NBA coach could be axed within weeks?

New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson could lose his job in the next few weeks, according to

The Knicks have struggled for form this season - winning just 19 games out of a possible 48. Woodson's side are currently outside the playoffs and have lost their last two games.

Their latest defeat came at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks - a side that have won a mere nine games so far this season.

Woodson was reportedly close to be given the boot at the beginning of December but dodged the axe as his side regained the kind of form that saw them earn a place in last season's playoffs.

Members of the Knicks team have became disillusioned with life under Woodson - with Amar’e Stoudemire among the players said to be unhappy to be plying their trade under the 55-year-old.

Stoudemire questioned Woodson's decision to limit his game-time at the start of the week.

Under-fire Woodson will be desperate for his side to bounce back against the Portland Trail Blazers tonight, as he is in need of a win to lift the pressure off of his shoulders.
