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.
Jan 28 - 10:06 AM

Beno Udrih, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Amare Stoudemire and Amare Stoudemire will start on Monday.

It'll be STAT's second start of the year after dropping eight points in 18 minutes on Saturday. Stoudemire probably will play in the lower teens for his minutes, so he's only worth a look in extremely deep leagues.
Jan 25 - 7:02 PM

Amare Stoudemire scored eight points with five rebounds in 18 minutes during his first start of the season in a 101-81 loss to the Raptors.

Apparently, we'll have to drop the one-word analysis on Stoudemire for now, but he's still way too injury prone to grab.
Jan 23 - 12:45 AM

Amare Stoudemire will start next to Tyler Johnson, Dwyane Wade, Justise Winslow and Chris Bosh on Friday against the Raptors.

Well, this is a surprise. Stoudemire's legs probably won't allow him to get excessive run, so it will take a little slice of crazy to start him in DFS.
Jan 22 - 7:48 PM

Amare Stoudemire started the second half on Wednesday with Hassan Whiteside (oblique) unavailable, finishing a lopsided loss with 11 points, three rebounds and four turnovers in 21 minutes.

Stoudemire has more DNPs this season (28) than combined assists (nine), steals (three) and blocks (seven). Even if Whiteside misses more games, there's no room for STAT on any fantasy roster.
Jan 20 - 10:54 PM

Amare Stoudemire started the second half of Wednesday's game with Hassan Whiteside (oblique) unavailable.

The Heat opted to stay big against Marcin Gortat and the Wizards, rather than shifting Chris Bosh to center. Stoudemire has no fantasy appeal.
Jan 20 - 8:27 PM

Amare Stoudemire played a season-high 15 minutes on Monday against the Pacers, scoring two points with five boards and one steal.

Jan 5 - 2:18 AM

Amare Stoudemire played his third game of the season on Friday, scoring one point to go with two boards and a block in seven minutes.

Sat, Dec 12, 2015 02:48:00 AM

Amare Stoudemire will be active for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

Josh McRoberts (rest) is out on Friday, so somebody has to step up. STAT has played in two games this season, so he's not a fantasy option.
