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

by May 02, 2012

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.’”
