Report: Knicks Expecting Amar’e Stoudemire to Return on Friday

Amar’e Stoudemire will look to suit back up again for the New York Knicks later on this week, as they desperately try to hang on to a Playoff spot. Per the NY Post: “Amar’e Stoudemire loves the atmosphere across the Hudson River when the Knicks play the Nets at Prudential Center. He loves that a Knicks-Nets game in Newark feels like a home game away from home. And though he has eyed the Knicks’ last-ever visit to New Jersey tomorrow as his big return from a bulging disk, the Knicks believe having him back in Cleveland on Friday is more realistic. Stoudemire has had two contact scrimmages, but yesterday’s practice was canceled because the club was beaten up further with Tyson Chandler’s knee injury. That hasn’t helped Stoudemire get into game shape. he will miss his 12th straight game tonight when the Knicks host the Celtics. With the Knicks less than two weeks from the playoffs, this is the second straight year Stoudemire will be less than 100 percent in the postseason because of back woes and he still hasn’t figured out how to play with Carmelo Anthony. Stoudemire has taken a vow of silence during his rehab.”

    NY fans need to be realistic and realize that the Knicks are guaranteed a 1st round playoff exit.

    ^ just looking to improve on last year. NY got swept first round. Looking to make Bulls or Heat work for it this year. Take the next step next year.
