Amar’e Stoudemire Returning to Action Tonight

by April 20, 2012

As expected, the New York Knicks will welcome Amar’e Stoudemire back into their lineup this evening in Cleveland. STAT confirmed the news to Yahoo! Sports in a video released last night: “Amar’e Stoudemire, who has kept a low profile since being sidelined with a bulging disk in his back, said that he will be back in the Knicks’ lineup Friday in Cleveland. Out since March 24, Stoudemire went into greater detail about his status and the Knicks in a video he released at the same time. The Knicks have four games left in the regular season, and they will likely be either the seventh or eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. That means a first-round matchup against Chicago or Miami. Stoudemire says the opponent doesn’t matter in terms of basketball. But he does have a preference when other factors are considered. ‘As far as weather and city, I’d rather be in Miami,’ he says.”
