Amare Stoudemire was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday.
Amare had been playing limited minutes as a starter ahead of Hassan Whiteside, but he was just a starter in name only. Miami would assuredly like to get him some rest before the postseason, assuming he'll even be in the rotation, so his minimal fantasy value has officially evaporated. Apr 10 - 8:27 PM

Amare Stoudemire needed just 15 minutes to score 16 points with nine boards and two blocks vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.

The only other time STAT has scored in double digits this month was against Philly on Mar. 4, so it makes sense that he had a nice game vs. the depleted Pelicans' frontcourt. He only gets minutes in the teens, so he's safe to leave on the wire.
Mar 22 - 10:47 PM

Amare Stoudemire (head laceration) went to the locker room during Friday's game against the 76ers, but he will return.

Stoudemire's head laceration didn't require any stitches to close, and it didn't look like much either. He's fine.
Mar 4 - 7:26 PM

Amare Stoudemire started Wednesday's game but he failed to score in just six minutes of action.

Hassan Whiteside started the second half and Miami went small quite often vs. the Warriors tonight, so there was no incentive to play Stoudemire. He belongs on the waiver wire.
Feb 24 - 11:48 PM

Goran Dragic, Gerald Green, Justise Winslow, Luol Deng and Amare Stoudemire are starting again on Saturday against the Wizards.

The Heat are in a similar scenario except that Hassan Whiteside is back. It'll be very interesting to see how Stoudemire and Josh McRoberts respond on a back-to-back. STAT isn't worth using with Whiteside back and McBobs has some risk, too.
Feb 20 - 5:57 PM

Amare Stoudemire scored just six points with six rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

It was a letdown, which isn't all that surprising in the front end of a back-to-back set. With Hassan Whiteside coming back on Saturday, Stoudemire can be dropped in most leagues.
Feb 20 - 12:22 AM

Amare Stoudemire is listed as the probable starter on Friday.

Josh McRoberts will likely have a cap, so STAT is really the last big man to be able to get big minutes with Chris Andersen in Memphis, Hassan Whiteside suspended and Chris Bosh (blood clot) out. Stoudemire should actually get some run and is worth a look in DFS tonight.
Feb 19 - 5:37 PM

Amare Stoudemire stuck in the starting lineup on Tuesday, but played just 13 minutes and finished with two points, eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Hassan Whiteside, if not suspended after his ejection tonight, appears to be nearing a return to the starting five, which would push Amare to the bench. As long as Chris Bosh and Whiteside are healthy and playing, Stoudemire can be thrown back into the waiver pool after a decent run as a starter for the Heat.
Feb 9 - 11:35 PM

Amare Stoudemire could move back to the bench on Tuesday.

Presumably this would mean Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is ready get back in the starting lineup, assuming he's healthy enough to play. Stoudemire has been surprisingly effective, but he's still not worth grabbing in almost any league.
Feb 8 - 4:01 PM

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hinted that Amare Stoudemire will still be in the rotation even though Hassan Whiteside is healthy again.

"Amar'e can be who he was in his 20's in short bursts if we're all smart about it and control the minutes," Spoelstra said. "That's the hardest thing for me to do. When we manage and bottle them up those minutes, he's fresh." STAT has averages of 9.8 points, 8.4 boards and 1.4 blocks over his last five games, but his value should be limited to deeper leagues with Whiteside back in the mix.
Feb 5 - 9:55 AM

Amare Stoudemire started again on Wednesday but played just 17 minutes to finish with six points, five rebounds and four blocks on 2-of-4 shooting.

He came in hot, but with Hassan Whiteside back, the Heat simply didn't need to play Amare heavy minutes. He was a solid fill-in for Whiteside, but now that he's back, Stoudemire probably isn't worth a look in standard or DFS leagues, unless Whiteside or Chris Bosh goes down. However, the season-high in blocks was nice.
Feb 3 - 11:48 PM

Amare Stoudemire had 14 points and 10 rebounds on 6-of-12 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.

Stoudemire's been starting and playing well in the absence of Hassan Whiteside (oblique) and has earned a role in the rotation once Whiteside is back. Amare is averaging 10.2 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks over his last five games, making him worth a deep-league look if you're desperate for a big man. But there's little doubt that the return of Whiteside will hurt the fragile Stoudemire, who's been playing nearly 24 minutes a night recently.
Feb 2 - 11:05 PM

Amare Stoudemire has impressed his teammates and the Miami coaching staff with his recent play, and he'll likely have a spot in the rotation even when Hassan Whiteside (hip) returns to the court.

Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade have both said that Amare is better at setting screens than Whiteside, and Miami has gone on a four-game winning streak with STAT in the starting lineup in addition to posting an improved defensive rating of 97.6. Amare's averages of 9.3 points and 7.5 rebounds per game as a starter won't really get it done in standard leagues, but if Stoudamire becomes a regular part of the rotation, he could cut into Hassan's playing time.
Feb 2 - 4:02 PM

Amare Stoudemire racked up 13 points and 12 rebounds vs. the Hawks on Sunday, adding three steals and one block in 21 minutes of action.

The former All-Star is playing well as a fill-in for Hassan Whiteside, averaging 9.0 points on 55.6 percent shooting, 8.4 boards and 1.2 steals over Miami's past five games. Whiteside is day-to-day and Stoudemire is averaging around 20 minutes per game even as a starter, however, so there's no reason to own him outside of the deepest leagues.
Jan 31 - 9:18 PM

Amare Stoudemire isn't thinking about retirement and wants to play at least 2-3 more seasons.

While retirement talk has followed the 33-year-old, STAT said he's not ready to hang them up jus tyet. "A lot of players kinda forgot that I can still play," Stoudemire said. "This is a great chance for me to remind them that I’ve still got it." While Stoudemire is still confident in himself, his wine baths haven't helped him average more than 7.8 points and 6.3 rebounds in 21.7 minutes in his past four games, so he shouldn't be owned in anything but deeper fantasy leagues right now.
