by May 05, 2013

Amar’e Stoudemire has been ruled out for Games 1 and 2, but the Knicks are hoping to have their power forward back on the court for Game 3 vs. Indiana on Saturday. Via ESPNNewYork: “New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson has targeted Game 3 of the Knicks-Pacers series as the date for Amar’e Stoudemire’s return. Stoudemire has been sidelined since March 7 with a right knee injury. He underwent a procedure to clean out debris in the knee on March 11. He has been ruled out of the first two games of the Knicks-Pacers series but may play in Game 3 next Saturday. Woodson said Stoudemire will scrimmage with his teammates on Thursday. If his knee responds well, he will scrimmage again on Friday. ‘If he feels fine after Friday, then I think we will play him Saturday,’ Woodson said.”
