Amar’e Stoudemire to Play 10-15 Minutes in Game 3 Return

According to New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson, Amar’e Stoudemire will indeed play Saturday night in Game 3 against the Indiana Pacers. STAT will be on a 10-15 minute limit. Per the NY Post: “The Knicks and Pacers are tied 1-1 in the second-round series as it switches to Indiana with a new face on the bench for Woodson’s club. Last time Stoudemire made a comeback on Jan. 1, from the same knee-debridement surgery, he took a half-dozen games to get his timing back. He doesn’t have such a luxury now. ‘I expect to contribute the best I can,’ Stoudemire said today. ‘I don’t have time to find my rhythm. I have to be ready from the start. That’s what it’s going to be.’ Stoudemire participated in a 4-on-4 scrimmage Thursday, looking a little less rusty than he did in his first scrimmage Monday, playing mano-a-mano against Earl Barron. Stoudemire, who shook free for a couple of spinning dunks, will take Friday as a recovery day. ‘I feel similar to the way I came back the first time,’ Stoudemire said. ‘I’ve been in the playoffs my entire career. I’ve played alongside a lot of great players. I know what it takes in the postseason.’”

    As much as I hate to hear this, NY can’t beat Miami without Stat. Hope he can shake some rust off before they get to south beach

    No prob. Which players from your favorite team are you trading for his uninsured contract?

  • Jerome

    And so ends any hope of beating the Pacers …

    Maybe they need him to punch more fire extinguishers to keep Melo on fire?

    Question, I know the Knicks amnestied Chauncey two seasons ago but is there any possibility you can amnesty Amare during the off season? Not sure how many people you can amnesty over a period of time.

    As long as he is coming off the bench, I dnt see why this won’t be beneficial…He back up Chandler, who is also not being THAT much of a factor…The need size to be able to continue to compete to the fullest…
