Stoudemire lacked burst throughout the game and several New York media types wondered if the recent minutes had caught up to him, but this was the Sixers so it was his time to shine. Carmelo Anthony added 22 points, nine boards and five assists, 'Everybody Loves' Raymond Felton had 13 points, three treys, two steals and a block, and J.R.

Amare Stoudemire scored 10 poins with just one rebound and one block over 19 minutes in Friday's blowout win over the Jazz.
Even though the game was a laugher this shows the downside in using Stoudemire. Unless you have supreme control over when you're deploying him, he has no real fantasy value outside of very big formats.

Amare Stoudemire played 31 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with eight boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks.
It was one of his best games in quite some time and he's played over 30 minutes in consecutive games for the first time all season. After the game, coach Mike Woodson said he likes STAT in the starting lineup, but he's a little worried about managing his minutes. Stoudemire is going to need his days off, but it's not a bad idea to pick him up for owners with some dead weight.

Amare Stoudemire said that he will "probably" play vs. the Pistons on Monday.
It's the second game of a back-to-back set and Stoudemire would typically sit out as a precaution, but he's eager to help get New York back into the win column. He said that he feels "great" but also wants to stick with the Knicks' original plan to hold him out of back-to-back sets, and anyone relying on Amare should proceed with caution until his mixed signals get sorted out.

He sat out Friday's game as a precaution during a back-to-back set, and sporadic games like Sunday aren't enough for fantasy value. Tim Hardaway Jr. added 14 points off the bench, while J.R. Smith chipped in 13 points but it wasn't nearly enough to overcome the surging Bulls. The Knicks play four games next week and they have a decent playoff schedule overall, but beware their two-game dud in Week 24 (April 7-13).

Amare Stoudemire will not play against the Warriors on Friday.
It's the second night of a back-to-back set and he looked horrible in Thursday's loss to the Heat. Stoudemire is starting to look worse as the season has gone on and chances are things won't improve for him and his bad knees. Jeremy Tyler may get a few more minutes while the Knicks go small.
