Amar’e Stoudemire: ‘Great Chance’ of Playing in Game 4


Despite fears that the Knicks would be without the services of Amare Stoudemire for the remainder of the First Round, after he punched the glass casing of a fire extinguisher, STAT seems to believe he’ll be able to suit up for Game 4 of the series against the Miami Heat. From the AP: “Amare Stoudemire says there’s a ‘great chance’ he can play in Game 4 of the Knicks’ series against Miami on Sunday despite cutting his left hand on a fire extinguisher case. Stoudemire is out of Thursday’s Game 3 after a surgeon repaired a muscle in the hand Tuesday. The Knicks are calling him doubtful for Game 4, but Stoudemire says he’s ‘not totally sure yet.’ Stoudemire, wearing a large wrap around his hand, says he has reason for hope because ‘I just persevere through a lot of injuries and work hard to recover from injuries.’”

    I’m more interested in whether or not Carmelo turns in a 45pt game – after which everyone will assume they don’t need him.

    Amar’e has had such a tough season, from the problems with his back, to losing his brother, and then cutting his left hand on a fire extinguisher case. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. I’d rather he just rest his hand, and let hit heal properly. I’m not mad at him anymore. I’m “over it.” :)

    @1982 I’m more interested in winning a game, not individual statistics.

  • Zabbah

    my ass.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    ^ what about it?

  • bike

    I thought he didn’t have any muscle or ligament damage? “after a surgeon repaired a muscle in the hand Tuesday.”
    If they did sugery on a muscle there is no way in hell he’s doing anything for a while.

    ‘I just persevere through a lot of injuries and work hard to recover from injuries.’ That sounds even more jackassish if the most recent injury was because you punched something during a rage. ORANGE, I know that you’re a diehard fan, but please don’t feel bad for the dude about the 3rd thing that you listed. The first two were slightly more out of his control.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    @vtrobot I was mad when I first heard he cut his hand and possibly lost for the series, because I thought he took a fist straight to the glass with the intention of breaking it, but after hearing how he hit the case, I know it was a fluke accident. I just think if anyone deseves a second chance it’s Amar’e. I don’t want him rushing back to prove anything.

    @Orange – I get that. But the only way I see a Knicks game 3 win is if Melo goes off. Hey, if he gets 25-10-10 and they win, I’m all for it. But I didn’t mean a 45pt night and an L.

    SLAM print the damn comment please…@Orange – I get that. But the only way I see a Knicks game 3 win is if Melo goes off. Hey, if he gets 25-10-10 and they win, I’m all for it. But I didn’t mean a 45pt night and an L.

  • ClydeSays

    Can’t see him coming back. Especially since this looks like a 4 game series.

  • eazy_

    Anyone have a link so i can read about how he hit the case.

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com/ O

    They Knicks will let him play in order to boost his trade value for the off season. Seriously tho, play him OFF THE BENCH!!!

  • riggs

    woodson messed up in not bringing him off the bench when he came back from injury.

  • IamYOU

    He would headbutt a glasscase if they still lose game 4.

  • Jerome

    @easy_: He swung at Melody after getting called out.

  • Jerome

    *Melo: best aoutocorrect ever.

  • dan

    he should have punched the refs of game 1 who fucked up the whole series more than any sloppy knick play

  • dan

    he should have punched the refs who f***d up the series in game one more than any sloppy knick or good heat play. nba – where setups happen.

  • dan

    and no team will trade for stat. his payroll is too high and he looked like an old big during most time of the season. i understand woodson – he has to make this work long term and sooner or later the team will click. as a knicks fan we are allrdy used to see it this way: next season… ;)

  • crooklyn

    Stay home and rest, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…stay home

  • L Dribble

    Shouldn’t the guy just keep quiet for a year until he stops being referred to the guy that “cut his left hand on a fire extinguisher case”. I can see him making a big impact in Game 5 though.

  • FLIGHT 9

    i know Amare wants to punch Carmelow….
