Derek Fisher expects Amare Stoudemire to be available for Thursday's game vs. Washington.
STAT has been off since Dec. 18, so he'll have a full week of rest heading into Thursday's game, and we fully expect him to suit up for that one. His return would likely send Cole Aldrich back to the bench, stay tuned. Dec 21 - 2:32 PM

Date:

Amare Stoudemire (rest) and J.R. Smith (heel) will not play in Sunday's game against the Raptors.

This is a tough blow for Amare's owners, as he was expected to play after taking the day off on Saturday. On the other hand, Smith was never expected to be available as continues to recover from plantar fasciitis. Cole Aldrich will likely continue to start for Amare, but he is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Dec 21 - 12:54 PM

Amare Stoudemire (rest) and J.R. Smith (heel) are out for Saturday's game against the Suns.

It is just a scheduled day of rest for Amare, and he should be good to go Sunday vs. the Raptors. On the other hand, Smith is considered doubtful against Toronto, and likely won't even travel with the team, meaning Tim Hardaway Jr. should continue to stay hot. Cole Aldrich will draw the start in place of Amare, and is worth a look in deeper leagues.

Amare Stoudemire is questionable to play Saturday vs. the Suns.

Amare started out of necessity on Thursday with Carmelo Anthony (knee), J.R. Smith (foot), and Iman Shumpert (shoulder) sidelined and put up 16 points, six rebounds, and four blocks in a losing effort to the Bulls. If he's able to go on Saturday, he'll be one of the primary options on offense for a depleted Knicks squad. If he sits, expect his minutes to be split up between Cole Aldrich, Quincy Acy, and Travis Wear.
Dec 19 - 12:52 PM

Amare Stoudemire made a surprise start on Thursday with 16 points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and four blocks in 31 minutes against the Bulls during a 103-97 loss.

He was expected to rest tonight, but the Knicks needed him to play because of their lack of scoring depth. The Knicks have a back-to-back set starting on Saturday, so his fantasy owners can expect him to sit in one of those games. His owners in weekly leagues will have a tough time using him because of the DNPs.
Dec 18 - 11:12 PM

Amare Stoudemire will start Thursday as the Knicks take on the Bulls.

Stoudemire will draw a difficult matchup tonight against the Bulls, but with J.R. Smith (foot) and Carmelo Anthony (knee) not playing, he's going to be given a lot of responsibility on the offensive end. He remains a risky play in daily leagues.
Dec 18 - 6:43 PM

Amare Stoudemire will dress against the Bulls on Thursday.

He was expected to rest, but the Knicks are simply running out of bodies. This doesn't necessarily mean he is going to play, so his owners will want to keep their eyes peeled. Unless he is in the starting lineup, it's probably best to steer of this situation. If you were planning on using Jason Smith, Quincy Acy or even Travis Wear in daily, you might want to dial back your expectations for now. Stay tuned as we provide updates leading to tip.

Amare Stoudemire (rest) will miss Thursday's game against the Bulls.

Carmelo Anthony is also questionable for Thursday, so we may see a very different lineup when the Knicks take the floor against the Bulls. Quincy Acy, Samuel Dalembert, and Travis Wear are likely to inherit most of STAT's minutes on Thursday, though none are worth a look for fantasy purposes outside of daily games.

Amare Stoudemire had 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and two blocks on 4-of-8 shooting in Tuesday's ugly loss to the Mavericks.

He's playing very well for one of the league's worst teams this season, but how long he can stay healthy, or motivated to do so, remains to be seen. The Knicks are now 5-22 on the season, and just 3-11 in the Garden.
Dec 16 - 10:36 PM

Amare Stoudemire (recovery) did not practice on Monday.

It was just a day of rest for Stoudemire, but there's not yet word if a wine bath may or may not be involved later. He should be fine for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks.
Dec 15 - 1:49 PM

Amare Stoudemire scored 20 points on 9-of-16 shooting with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in Friday's win.

Stoudemire disappeared on Wednesday but the Knicks need him to be productive so he'll continue to be a must-own player.
Dec 12 - 11:48 PM

Amare Stoudemire was a no show during a 109-95 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday with eight points, two rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

He was in foul trouble and the Knicks may have taken it easy on him in the second half of a back-to-back set. The Knicks should feed him the rock more often, so his fantasy owners can keep him active for the weekend.
Dec 11 - 1:16 AM

Amare Stoudemire's streak of impressive games continued on Tuesday, as he racked up a team-high 26 points on 11-of-18 shooting with five rebounds and five blocks in 32 minutes.

New York lost their ninth straight game despite Amare's big night, and the frustration is quickly mounting for the 4-19 Knickerbockers. Stoudemire's fantasy owners have nothing to complain about, as his knees are holding up under an expanded role and he's cruising along with top-100 value over the past five games.
Dec 9 - 11:08 PM

Amare Stoudemire notched his fourth double-double of the season in Sunday's loss, scoring 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting with 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 36 minutes.

He was held to seven points on Friday but has now cracked double-digits in nine of New York's past 11 games, and he's topped 30 minutes in four of the past five. The Knicks' training staff obviously has confidence in the health of Stoudemire's knees, and fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to start him while he's playing this well in heavy minutes.
Dec 7 - 10:50 PM

Amare Stoudemire will start next to Jose Calderon, Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony and Quincy Acy on Sunday against the Blazers.

The Knicks are shuffling their lineups like a deck of cards this season and Samuel Dalembert will come off the bench. Stoudemire should be worth starting while he's active, but he's going to be inconsistent while missing games here and there.
