Amare Stoudemire A Game-Time Decision For Sunday

NBA

New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire is a game-time decision for Sunday’s Game 4 against the Miami Heat, according to ESPN New York. Stoudemire practiced fully on Saturday, according to ESPN.

“He looked pretty good out here on the floor,” Woodson said. “But again, it’s not my decision. It’s going to be the doctor’s and his decision.”

Stoudemire missed Game 3 after punching the glass of a fire extinguisher case after the team’s Game 2 loss to the Heat. He needed stiches to repair the wound and surgery to repair a muscle in his hand, according to ESPN.

“I didn’t see him grimace or anything like that catching passes. But at the end of the day I don’t know how it’s going to react,” teammate Tyson Chandler said, according to ESPN.

Stoudemire averaged 17.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game for the Knicks in the regular season and scored 18 points with 7 rebound in the team’s Game 2 loss.
