Amar’e Stoudemire was expected to miss approximately six weeks after undergoing a knee debridement on May 11, and now at the eight week mark, the Knicks forward is eyeing a Game 3 return in the second round series against the Pacers.
According to Ian Begley, ESPN New York:
New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson has targeted Game 3 of the Knicks-Pacers series as the date for Amar’e Stoudemire’s return.
Woodson said Stoudemire will scrimmage with his teammates on Thursday. If his knee responds well, he will scrimmage again on Friday.
“If he feels fine after Friday then I think we will play him Saturday,” Woodson said.
