The New York Knicks have one of the best records in the NBA and they have reached that level without their star Amar’e Stoudemire. Even though the Knicks have been led by players like Jason Kidd and Carmelo Anthony, they are missing front-court offense due to the absence of Amar’e Stoudemire.
Stoudemire injured his knee before the season started and he has not played a single game for the Knicks yet. Stoudemire is inching closer and closer to his return and the Knicks are expecting to have him back on the court in the coming weeks.
SI.com reports that Stoudemire scrimmaged with the Erie Bayhawks, the Knicks’ D-League affiliate.
Stoudemire scrimmaged with Erie, the Knicks’ NBA Development League affiliate, which was practicing at the Knicks’ training center. The Knicks weren’t planning to have a full-court workout, so they decided to give Stoudemire work with the BayHawks.
At this point, the Knicks do not want to rush anything with Stoudemire and they will make sure he gets back on the court once he reaches 100 percent. New York is playing amazing basketball right now, but at this point no one is sure how far the team can go with Stoudemire on the sidelines.
