NBA Rescinds Technical Foul; Stoudemire Eligible To Play

NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA has rescinded Amare Stoudemire’s latest technical foul, making him eligible to play in the New York Knicks’ next game.

Stoudemire was whistled for would have been his 16th technical of the season on Thursday in the Knicks’ 127-109 loss in Dallas. He and the Mavericks’ Brendan Haywood were called for offsetting technicals in the second quarter. It was such an innocuous confrontation, however, that both players came away laughing, baffled by the call from official Bennett Salvatore.

Haywood’s technical also was rescinded Friday after a review by the NBA league office.

Stoudemire has had three technicals rescinded this season. Players are automatically suspended one game once they’ve reached
16.
