Amare Stoudemire said he's not even thinking about retirement at this point in his career.
With former Suns teammates Steve Nash and Shawn Marion either retired or set to retire, Stoudemire said he isn't planning to follow suit. "This isn’t it for me, for sure," STAT said. "There’s a lot of basketball left. There’s a lot of high-level basketball left in me. I feel competitive. I have faith in my body, what I can do on a basketball court on a consistent basis." Future plans aside, the 32-year-old is averaging just 9.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14 games with the Mavericks and can be safely left on the waiver wire in standard fantasy leagues.

Amare Stoudemire scored 16 points in 17 minutes off the bench against the Suns on Sunday.

He shot 7-of-11 from the field and added four rebounds to his name, but it wasn't enough to lift the Mavericks over his former team. Stoudemire is capable of random scoring outbursts such as this, but the fact that he is averaging just 13.6 minutes over his last five games severely limits his value. Leave him on the wire.

Amare Stoudemire blasted his teammates after their embarrassing home defeat to the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

The Cavaliers pummeled the Mavericks 127-94, and Stoudemire didn't hold back when asked about the team's recent struggles. "I came here to win, and we're [4.5] games out of being out of the playoffs, which is unacceptable," Stoudemire said. "We can't cheat the game. We can't screw around in games and practices and joke around all the time and figure we're going to win games. This is the pros. It's the highest level of basketball. We've got to act that way." Stoudemire is no stranger to losing games after a tumultuous tenure with the Knicks, so it is understandable why he is so upset. The Mavericks have lost five of their last seven games, and they will look to turn things around vs. the shorthanded Clippers on Friday.

Amare Stoudemire played 20 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, finishing a 94-127 home loss with 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, three rebounds and one turnover.

Stoudemire is scoring efficiently for Dallas, hitting double-digits in four of his past five games, but that's the extent of his fantasy appeal. The Mavs are 5-5 in their past 10 games and they've fallen to No. 7 in the West, half a game behind the Spurs and a full game behind the Clippers.

Amare Stoudemire said that he will continue playing in the NBA as long as his body allows him to.

"There’s no timeframe," Stoudemire said. "Depending on what my body tells me … I just listen to my body, and go from there." It's no secret that he hasn't exactly been the most durable player in recent years, but he still has some gas left in the tank and there is no reason why he wouldn't be able to play a few more years in a limited role off the bench. Dallas is going to be cautious with his minutes with playoffs right around the corner, so it's going to be tough to own Stoudemire outside of deeper leagues moving forward.
Mar 1 - 9:35 AM

Amare Stoudemire scored nine points with six rebounds in 20 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

He had a cut on his nose, but he was patched up and it shouldn't cost him playing time. Stoudemire is likely going to sit out throughout the rest of the season and can remain on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 28 - 11:15 PM

Amare Stoudemire will play against the Nets on Saturday.

He was rested against the Hawks on Wednesday, but he was able to make it through a full practice on Friday. However, Stoudemire is still only expected to play limited minutes off the bench, so his value is limited to deeper leagues until further notice.
Feb 28 - 8:01 PM

Amare Stoudemire (rest) was a full participant during Friday's practice.

Stoudemire will likely be able to give it a go for Saturday's game vs. the Nets, but his minutes will be limited, making him a risky option in most leagues. Through two games with the Mavs this season, STAT has compiled averages of 10.0 points and 3.0 rebounds, and as a bench player for the Mavs he won't be worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 27 - 1:52 PM

Amare Stoudemire (rest) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday.

The Mavs won't have two of their past-their-prime veterans tonight. With Amare out, there should be more minutes for Al-Farouq Aminu to play next to Dirk Nowitzki. Charlie Villanueva will also likely get more run. Stoudemire is not worth owning in almost any league.
Feb 25 - 5:42 PM

Amare Stoudemire logged 17 minutes in his second game with the Mavs, finishing a win vs. the Raptors with six points, three rebounds and one steal off the bench.

Dallas may rest Amare during back-to-backs as a precaution, and his lack of an official minute-limit doesn't mean much while Tyson Chandler and Dirk Nowitzki are both healthy. He's a perpetual injury risk and isn't worth gambling on outside of the deepest formats.
Feb 24 - 11:48 PM

Amare Stoudemire scored 14 points with three boards in just 11 minutes in his debut with the Mavericks on Sunday.

The minutes are the big story here, as it's clear that the Mavericks will likely do everything they can to keep Stoudemire fresh for the postseason. At this point in his career, Stoudemire belongs on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues.
Feb 22 - 10:20 PM

Amare Stoudemire will not have a minutes restriction on Sunday against the Hornets.

This still doesn't mean that Amare will play many minutes, as the Mavericks are going to want to keep him fresh for the postseason. Head coach Rick Carlisle said that Amare will play more minutes at center rather than power forward, but he also didn't rule out playing him alongside Tyson Chandler at times as well. Regardless, Amare is still only worth holding onto in deeper leagues until further notice.
Feb 22 - 5:55 PM

Amare Stoudemire will make his debut for the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday against the Hornets.

He's going to serve as the primary backup to Dirk Nowitzki, and the Mavs will probably limit his minutes in an effort to keep him fresh for the postseason. Outside of deeper leagues, there's no reason to grab Stoudemire off the waiver wire.
Feb 22 - 9:47 AM

Amare Stoudemire (ankle) will not play Thursday or Friday.

The newly-acquired Stoudemire will not suit up for Thursday's game against the Thunder or Friday's game against the Rockets, so the earliest we'll see him in a Mavs uniform is Sunday against the Hornets. STAT will basically serve as a backup to Dirk Nowitzki and will likely be on a minutes limit, so fantasy owners can feel free to leave him on waivers.
Feb 19 - 12:01 PM

Mavs sign F/C Amare Stoudemire.

The deal is official and it's expected to be for the league minimum, which is still expected to be $485,670 for STAT. The Mavericks are desperate for a big man and they've even had to play Dirk Nowitzki at the five. With Stoudemire in the mix, we should see a little less from Al-Farouq Aminu. Stoudemire is likely just going to back up Dirk Nowitzki because a Dirk-STAT frontline doesn't sound like a good solution on defense. He can be left on the wire in most leagues.
