Now for some good news on the Knicks’ bleak injury front:

Ronnie Brewer, their projected starting shooting guard, may practice today for the first time as a Knick and could make his club debut on their upcoming Montreal-Albany-Syracuse preseason road trip.

On Media Day, Carmelo Anthony said the 27-year-old Brewer’s August signing was “the most underrated’’ acquisition of their offseason. The former Bulls shooting guard, who had knee surgery to repair his meniscus cartilage in early September, is known for his ability to play defense — which is very intriguing to Knicks coach Mike Woodson.
IN ‘D’ MOOD: Ronnie Brewer, who defended against LeBron James as a Bull two seasons ago, and wore a Knicks uniform during Media Day, is expected to practice today and may make his preseason debut with the Knicks on Friday against the Raptors in Montreal.

IN ‘D’ MOOD: Ronnie Brewer, who defended against LeBron James as a Bull two seasons ago, and wore a Knicks uniform during Media Day, is expected to practice today and may make his preseason debut with the Knicks on Friday against the Raptors in Montreal.

Brewer, selected 14th out of Arkansas in the 2006 draft by Utah, can also bang in a perimeter shot. The thrifty Bulls let the heady six-year veteran walk this summer after he grew as a player under defensive genius Tom Thibodeau.

Woodson said Brewer is expected to practice either today or tomorrow and wouldn’t completely rule him out for Friday’s game in Montreal, where the Knicks face the Raptors in their third preseason game. The next two contests — Saturday in Albany against the Celtics and Monday in Syracuse against the Sixers — are definitely in play.

“If that could happen, it’s a major plus,’’ said Woodson, who views Brewer as their starter at least until Iman Shumpert returns in December or January.

With Amar’e Stoudemire to make his preseason debut in Montreal, it’s possible the Knicks’ projected starting five will be intact in Canada.

Asked if he preferred Brewer’s offense or defense, Woodson said, “I like them both. I think he can defend. That’s one of the reasons we brought him here. He knows how to play. He’s just a basketball player.’’

Woodson has scrambled to find a starting shooting guard in the wake of injuries. He refuses to start J.R. Smith under any circumstances — which has deeply disappointed the mercurial guard. In the first two preseason games, Woodson has started Mychel Thompson, who may not make the team, and James White, the free agent signee who recently played in Italy. Ultimately, it is Brewer’s starting job.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Knicks’ injury report regarding their backup big men is not encouraging. Marcus Camby’s seven-to-10-day timetable has expired and he didn’t practice yesterday, nor is he a sure thing for next week, because of his left calf strain.

Camby, the Knicks’ backup center, is in his second stint at age 38. His first stint also was marked by injuries.

“I can’t say he’s getting close,’’ Woodson said. “He’s feeling better, put it that way. I’ll talk to [trainer] Roger [Hinds] and the training staff and see if there’s a chance of him coming back next week. I don’t know yet.”’’

Camby lasted just three days of camp before going down.

“I’m not concerned,’’ Woodson said. “He’s got an injury and we’re treating it. Eventually he’ll be back on the floor.’’

The news also wasn’t good for backup power forward Rasheed Wallace, who has yet to scrimmage through the first two weeks of training camp as he remains on the sidelines, working on his conditioning.

As each day passes, there’s more mystery about whether Woodson will keep Wallace on the final 15-man roster.

“He’s got to get ready for practice first, then we’ll talk about scrimmaging,’’ Woodson said.

Wallace has been working with strength coach Dave Hancock and a.ssistant LaSalle Thompson in physical low-post drills, sprinkled with running laps after each shot. Wallace has also been seen boxing and jumping rope.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who coached Wallace two years ago in Boston, said over the weekend he felt Wallace was right to retire two years ago unless he had made a larger commitment to getting in shape.

Coach Mike Woodson has time to decide if out-of-shape Rasheed Wallace can help the Knicks before owner James Dolan is on the hook for the entire $1.3 million veteran’s minimum.

According to a person familiar with the situation, Wallace’s contract won’t be guaranteed in full until Jan. 5. Wallace signed a traditional non-guaranteed, make-good pact that has no addendums, The Post has learned.

Under the CBA, standard non-guaranteed contracts signed for training camp mandate the pact has to be guaranteed in full by Jan. 5. Additions can be made in certain instances to have the contract guaranteed if the player makes the team. That didn’t happen with Wallace.

So the risk is less and ramifications huge. It allows Woodson latitude in giving Wallace time to prove himself. He still has not been cleared to practice, let alone scrimmage, as he works on the side on his conditioning. Wallace is expected to miss the entire preseason schedule.

If Woodson decides to use one of his 15 roster spots on Wallace, he can cut him after the season’s first two weeks and the club is on the hook for the small pro-rated portion of $1.3 million.

If Woodson uses the final two spots on a youngsters Mychel Thompson and Chris Copeland, he would cut Wallace by Oct. 31. Wallace then would only be paid training-camp money — $2,000 a week or $8,000 — not the prorated portion of his $1.3 million NBA contract.

Woodson hinted Wallace could practice for the first time Tuesday after the team’s three-game road trip.

“He’ll definitely be reevaluated after the road trip just to see where he is,’’ Woodson said. “And there’s a chance he can go next week based on my conversations with the doctor.’’

* While starting shooting guard Ronnie Brewer made his practice debut as a Knick yesterday, J.R. Smith sat out and wore a boot on his left foot. Smith sat out Saturday’s exhibition game in Hartford with what the Knicks called a sore ankle, but Smith told The Post it is his Achilles.

Smith had returned to practice Tuesday, but Woodson said he needs more rest. Brewer, meanwhile, was held out of scrimmage but will today and could play on the road trip.

“I was a little overanxious,’’ said Brewer, who had knee surgery on his meniscus in early September. “I thought I was going to be able to do the full practice. They wanted me to be cautious and take it slowly.’’

* During a tour of Garden’s upper-bowl transformation, the Knicks said official capacity this season will be down about 1,000 seats from the 19,763. Next season, capacity will jump back to normal.

James White will get the start tonight, Amar'e will play tonight but not tomorrow. Brewer & Camby will likely not play the last 3 games after tonight as a precaution

"Landry Fields said at the morning shootaround at Montreal's Bell Centre he probably needed a change but still was sad when #Knicks didn't match on July 15th. “I really didn’t know,'' Fields said in the Canadiens lockerroom. "I knew it was a large sum. It was kind of bittersweet. It was sad because it was the end of two great years in my opinion in New York. But it was also new beginnings in Toronto.'' When asked if he needed a change after his drop-off in play coincided with the Melo trade, Fields said, “I think so. It was a fresh start and couldn’t have come at a better time for me. It was a accumulation of things. I lost some confidence in myself.’’ "
