07:23 AM ET 12.03 | Tick-tock. The expiration date on owner James Dolan's recent vote of confidence for coach Mike Woodson is approaching, according to sources. While Woodson will coach the Knicks when they play the Nets on Thursday, it is unclear how much longer Dolan will allow this losing streak to go on. It has reached nine straight defeats and the team's mental instability has become an issue. Dolan is obsessed with the Brooklyn franchise and a blowout loss could trigger changes -- whether via trade or a coaching move. ... The Post has also learned that if Dolan eventually makes a move, old enemy and ex-Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy would not be ruled out as a future candidate -- though such a hire seems more sensible in the offseason if Dolan goes with an interim coach.
