Amar’e Stoudemire Aiming to Return For Second Round

by Yaron Weitzman / @YaronWeitzman

Amar’e Stoudemire spoke to reporters before Tuesday night’s Celtics-Knicks game, his first time doing so since undergoing surgery on his right knee in early March. Stoudemire said that his recovery is going well and that he’s aiming to return to the court in the second round, if the Knicks advance. He did add, however, that he hasn’t begun practicing at full speed yet.

“Everything’s on schedule for the most part,” Stoudemire said. “I’ve got to continue to get stronger, got to get back on the court, start moving around at full speed sooner or later. I’m not sure exactly when.”

Stoudemire said he was aiming to start doing so by the end of this week.

“It’s really precautionary measures,” he said, “just taking our time and figuring out exactly how it reacts to a hard load or a hard workout. And if I can handle that then we go up a notch, that’s great. Then I’m looking for hopefully playing soon. We’ll see.”

    At this point, the Knicks should give Amare his own spinoff show on MSG documenting his unending rehab: “100 Million Dollar Man”

    cool, so we’ll most likely see him after two more games

    honestly, they are just better without him. even when amare was playing well when he came back this season the knicks started slumping. the sample size is getting big enough now. shut him down

    I feel bad for Amar’e. he signed in New York when no one else would to be the man, and then they trade away his whole team for Carmelo…

    They won’t beat Boston.

    How he’s feeling reading this i’d imagine..

  • danpowers

    …because additional scoring burtsts in limited minutes off the bench hurt a team? makes sense…. not

  • Max

    Don’t yoy think the Knicks are a better team without Amaré?
