Stoudemire stated Sunday that his surgically-repaired right knee felt fine, after playing his first game Saturday in over two months, New York Newsday reports. (Rotowire.com)
Recommendation: Stoudemire, who posted seven points (3-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and two boards in nine minutes in his first game back in the fold, will continue to log 10-to-12 minutes in the Knicks' frontcourt. However, with Kenyon Martin dealing with an illness heading into Tuesday's Game 4 at Indiana, it'll be interesting to see if coach Mike Woodson adds a bit more run to Stoudemire's plate. No matter how many minutes he gathers, Stoudemire will provide a punch to an occasionally listless offense.
