Amare Stoudemire played 20 minutes in Wednesday's finale against the Raptors, scoring eight points with five boards and one assist.
It was a big positive to see him even suit up in both games of a back-to-back set and he finished this season quite well. Stoudemire only missed two games since Mar. 1 and they were as a precaution, so the Knicks managing his minutes earlier worked out nicely. He had very little fantasy value coming into the season, but this year will put him on the radar as a late-round pick next year. Apr 17 - 12:09 AM

Amare Stoudemire played 21 minutes on Tuesday and had 14 points, three rebounds and a block.

Mike Woodson left it up to Amare as to whether he played or not tonight, and he looked pretty good at times. It would be a little surprising to see Stoudemire play in Wednesday's finale, although it's still possible. Either way, look for Cole Aldrich, who had 13 & 13 tonight, to play well again tomorrow.

Amare Stoudemire will start at PF vs. the Nets on Tuesday.

He was a game-time decision but coach Mike Woodson said Amare would determine his own status, so apparently he felt good enough to play. Whether he suits up again on Wednesday is less certain, as is his long-term future in the NBA -- Amare said on Tuesday that he'll consider leaving to play for his team in Israel after the 2014-15 season.
Apr 15 - 6:39 PM

Amare Stoudemire suggested that he might leave the NBA to play in Israel once his contract with the Knicks expires in 2015.

Stoudemire is co-owner of Hopoel Jerusalem, a team which finished first in the Israeli league this summer. "We’ll see,’’ Stoudemire said. "You can’t rule anything out. The future is unknown and so if I have an opportunity to [play in Israel] and am still in great health, it would be great." The very possibility of Amare heading to Israel will grab headlines but we won't read too much into this until the 2014-15 season begins winding down.
Apr 15 - 4:20 PM

Amare Stoudemire joins the list of game-time decisions for Tuesday, as coach Mike Woodson says it's up to Amare as to whether or not he plays.

And given that we all now know that if Stoudemire sits out, it's because he didn't want to play, we're guessing he'll suit up for at least a few minutes. But again, it's up to him.
Apr 15 - 11:19 AM

Amare Stoudemire played a season-high 40 minutes against the Raptors on Friday for 24 points, 11 boards and one block on 10-of-14 shooting.

Is it 2008 or something? Stoudemire played more than 32 minutes just once this season and the Knicks let him loose in a must-win game. STAT has been very good since he rested on Mar. 31, averaging 16.3 points, 6.5 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.3 steals on 65.8 percent shooting in his last four. The team should play him in all three of the final games this season, which makes him a nice start in standard formats.
Apr 11 - 11:08 PM

Amare Stoudemire continued his strong post-break run against the Heat on Sunday with 12 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

While few believed Stoudemire would be able to sustain his 19.6 minutes per game before the break, he's surprisingly pushed it to 26.7 per game since the break. He hasn't really dealt with any noteworthy injury and the Knicks have done a nice job managing his minutes this season. Although, the Knicks only have four games left with one back-to-back set, so Amare might only have three games left this season.
Apr 6 - 3:54 PM

Amare Stoudemire returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday with 13 points, six boards, two assists and two blocks vs. the Nets.

The Knicks were able to get this game into garbage time quickly and it allowed Stoudemire keep his minutes down. He sat out as a precaution on Monday on the second half of a back-to-back set and will likely sit out in the second half of a back-to-back in the season finale on Apr. 16. He should be worth starting in all leagues until then.
Apr 2 - 11:08 PM

Amare Stoudemire will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

He rested on Monday night as the second part of a back-to-back set and should be good to go tonight. Stoudemire played very well in March, averaging 16.9 points, 6.6 boards and 0.7 blocks on 56.9 percent from the field. If you have him, he should be in your lineup tonight.
Apr 2 - 5:22 PM

Amare Stoudmire (recovery) will not play against the Jazz on Monday night.

The Knicks are on a back-to-back set and Amare will sit down after logging 31 minutes vs. the Warriors on Monday. Surprisingly, this is his first game in street clothes since Mar. 12 and he's turned in a fantastic month, averaging 16.9 points, 6.6 boards and 0.7 blocks. He should be ready for Wednesday vs. the Nets. Iman Shumpert will start in his place.
Mar 31 - 7:32 PM

Amare Stoudemire double-doubled with 15 points and 13 rebounds in 31 minutes vs. the Warriors' short-handed frontcourt on Sunday.

STAT's resurgence is a wonderful sub-plot to the Knicks' pursuit of a playoff spot, and he's only missed one game all month while appearing in three different back-to-back sets. He seems determined to finish strong, and the Knicks need his production to overtake the eighth-place Hawks, so fantasy owners can feel reasonably comfortable using him in New York's four-game week.
Mar 30 - 11:59 PM

Amare Stoudemire played 30 minutes vs. the Suns on Friday during a 112-88 loss with 19 points, six boards and one block.

There were some scattered boos for Amare against this former team, but he continues to play well for the Knicks. Stoudemire didn't have any assists and he looked like he played with a chip on his shoulder tonight perhaps because the Suns let him go back in 2010. STAT is worth owning in standard leagues and looks the healthiest he's ever been in a Knicks uniform.
Mar 29 - 5:20 AM

Amare Stoudemire played in back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday and had 12 points, six rebounds and a steal on 6-of-10 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Kings.

The Knicks are pushing the Hawks, who were blown out at Minnesota tonight, for the final playoff spot in the East after tonight's win. The Knicks are just two games back, as the Hawks have now lost four straight games. Stoudemire, who is averaging 16.6 points and 5.6 rebounds over his last five games, looks like a safe start these days as the Knicks make their final push for the playoffs. He's played in three sets of back-to-backs in the month of March.
Mar 27 - 1:24 AM

Amare Stoudemire will play against the Kings on Wednesday night.

It's the second game of a back-to-back set and it's another piece of evidence to indicate Stoudemire is healthy. He's worth using in standard leagues while he's going strong and has put together some solid runs this year.
Mar 26 - 8:38 PM

Mike Woodson hopes that Amare Stoudemire will play in the second of New York's back-to-back games on Wednesday.

Stoudemire scored 16 points in 27 minutes during Tuesday's blowout and he's already played in two back-to-back sets in March, so there's a good chance he'll suit up vs. the Kings. His health is vital to the Knicks' dwindling playoff odds since Kenyon Martin (ankle) and Andrea Bargnani (elbow) remain uncertain to return this season.
