Amare Stoudemire PF/C NY 2 Days

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 got this game into garbage time 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.

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.

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.

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.
