Amare Stoudemire (wrist, ankle) is expecting to miss time.
"I'm sure it's going to be a little time for me to get over this ankle sprain and my wrist sprain," Stoudemire said. Assuming STAT is out on Monday at the very least, it would mean more minutes for guys like Lance Thomas, Jason Smith and Lou Amundson. From a fantasy perspective, Thomas is the most interesting name as he has back-to-back games with 16 points, and is averaging 16 points, six rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals on 15-of-29 shooting over that span.

Amare Stoudemire suffered a sprained ankle and a sprained wrist during Saturday's game with Charlotte.

"I suffered a sprained ankle and sprained right wrist,’’ Stoudemire said. "It was a lot of physical contact out there. A lot of my moves attacking the basket, I got swiped down on it, caught my wrist almost every time. I tried to play through it but I was struggling. I couldn’t be myself out there.’’ The news just keeps getting worse for Amare, and it's already known that his knee is also a major concern moving forward. At this point it is safe to assume that Amare doesn't have a great shot to play on Monday vs. the Kings, but we will be sure to monitor his status closely. If he does end up sitting, expect to see more of Cole Aldrich, Jason Smith, Lou Amundson and Lance Thomas.

Amare Stoudemire scored just one point in 12 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday with four rebounds.

He had a minor ankle sprain tonight and was able to return. Stoudemire just didn't seem like himself and he was a little more bashful on the offensive side. He's not going to be worth owning in most leagues, especially considering how frequently he'll miss games.
Jan 24 - 9:45 PM

Amare Stoudemire went to the locker room in the first half against the Hornets on Saturday and is probable to return.

He is back on the bench with a minor ankle sprain and should be OK. If he's limited, expect to see more of Cole Aldrich, Quincy Acy, Jason Smith and Lance Thomas.
Jan 24 - 7:31 PM

Amare Stoudemire (knee) is available to play on Saturday vs. Charlotte.

He could see a bump in production if Carmelo Anthony (knee) decides to sit this one out, but Stoudemire is too inconsistent to use in most leagues. There is simply too much injury risk involved with Stoudemire, so owners would be advised to look elsewhere for production, especially with fantasy playoffs right around the corner.
Jan 24 - 11:55 AM

Amare Stoudemire (rest) will not play against the Magic on Friday.

He will play against the Hornets on Saturday. The Knicks have another game on Monday and it was obvious Stoudemire wasn't going to play in both games. With STAT out, Cole Aldrich will likely get minutes again while Jason Smith and Lou Amundson may also play more. Carmelo Anthony may be a stretch four, too.
Jan 23 - 5:49 PM

Amare Stoudemire (knee) will play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

He is still expected to come off the bench and will likely only see around 20 minutes of action. Given the concerns over his ailing knee and his questionable role going forward, Stoudemire shouldn't be owned outside of deeper leagues.
Jan 21 - 10:20 AM

Derek Fisher stated during a recent interview that Amare Stoudemire will need to play at a high level to secure his playing time.

"Whether [Amare is] out there every night, with 40 games we have to go, I can’t guarantee that," said Fisher. "I think on nights he’s doing the things he did [vs. New Orleans], we should have him on floor as much as we possibly can." Stoudemire's minutes will likely fluctuate greatly for the rest of the season, and with the plethora of random rest days he’s bound to receive, Amare is going to be a tough guy to own in standard leagues.
Jan 20 - 4:36 PM

Amare Stoudemire played 21 minutes against the Pelicans on Monday with 14 points, six rebounds, one assist and one block.

He played very well and was able to operate in the paint thanks to Anthony Davis (toe) not being there. The Knicks will certainly have a minutes cap on Stoudemire most nights and he's likely to sit out on most back-to-back sets, so it's going to be tough to count on him in most leagues.
Jan 19 - 8:41 PM

Amare Stoudemire will come off the bench against the Pelicans on Monday.

There is a chance his minutes are limited today. Stoudemire played just eight minutes on Thursday and he is unlikely to get more than 20 minutes tonight. Cole Aldrich, Quincy Acy and Jason Smith are not as attractive in fantasy leagues.
Jan 19 - 4:00 PM

Amare Stoudemire (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

He was only able to play eight minutes in London on Thursday, so owners should probably leave him on the bench even if he is activated. Stoudemire's knee will likely trouble him for the rest of the season, and with the Knicks thinking towards the future, there is no reason to hold onto him outside of deeper leagues. Cole Aldrich and Jason Smith will benefit the most should Stoudemire miss this one.
Jan 18 - 11:00 AM

Amare Stoudemire played just eight minutes in his return to action on Thursday, grabbing two rebounds and swatting away one shot without registering any other statistics.

Ouch, the Knicks looked awful in this one and the lopsided score throughout the contest was likely the reason coach Derek Fisher chose to bench Stoudemire for the entire second half. He'll likely be on a minutes restriction the rest of the year, and that partnered with the plethora of rest days he's bound for makes him an unattractive option in standard leagues.
Jan 15 - 5:47 PM

Amare Stoudemire (knee) will start against the Bucks in London on Thursday.

This will be Stoudemire's first game back after missing the Knicks' last nine contests, so there's a good chance that he won't play more than 25 minutes on Thursday. STAT had previously said he expects to be on a minutes restriction for the rest of the season, so he'll likely be a borderline player in standard fantasy leagues if he's playing less than his 26.4 per game average the rest of the way.
Jan 15 - 1:42 PM

Amare Stoudemire (knee) is expected to play in London against the Bucks on Thursday.

Knicks head coach Derek Fisher said he expects Stoudemire to play as long as there aren't any setbacks prior to the game. It's also worth noting that Stoudemire said that he expects to be on a minutes limit for the rest of the season, so while he's been a productive player when healthy this year, he'll be tough to roster in standard fantasy leagues if he's playing less than his 26.4 minutes per game average.
Jan 15 - 12:02 PM

The New York Knicks have reportedly had internal talks about potentially buying out Amare Stoudemire (knee).

He has been sidelined since Christmas day with an ailing knee and with the Knicks opting to rebuild this news isn't that surprising. "It’s a very difficult situation at this point," Stoudemire said. "It’s a hard decision for me to make. My loyalty has always been with New York and the Knicks." It sounds like Stoudemire has discussed this possibility with the Knicks, but for now they are leaning towards keeping him for the remainder of the season. In other news, He is also said to be targeting a return to the lineup on Thursday so his owners will want to check back for an update before activating him in lineups.
