The chances that coach Mike Woodson ends up looking good for this decision are slim to none.
Amar’e Stoudemire will likely be limited to about 10 to 15 minutes per game if he is able to return during New York’s playoff series against the Indiana Pacers.
Nobody ever really stops Carmelo Anthony. Not in his mind, anyway.
The Knicks will not concede they have a “big” problem — yet. Check back if they lose Game 2 on Tuesday night.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Benefit gave A-listers, including Madonna, Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth Paltrow, co-chair Anna Wintour, and honorary chair Beyonce, a chance to flaunt their finest on the red carpet.
Reports that Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire could make his return to action soon are establishing expectations he may not be able to fulfill.
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen this sort of thing, so I’ll explain…
“If he’s able to make it back, he will be back in the rotation, ready to play,” Woodson said. “I’m expecting him to do what he was doing before he left. He played some pretty good, positive minutes for our ballclub before he got hurt.”
With more than 50 wins for the New York Knicks and more than 27 points per game for himself, the numbers back Melo up. The Knicks won a division title, and Anthony will add the scoring title after the regular season ends Wednesday.
This is a huge big-picture accomplishment that no one should underestimate or take for granted — no matter what the Knicks do in the playoffs.
The 40-year-old Thomas was waived on Friday. He was sidelined last month by a stress fracture in his right foot and missed 12 games.
There are four games left, and the most important question remains unanswered: When the playoffs begin, which Knicks team will take the floor?
The Knicks will be without big men Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin on Thursday when they bring their 13-game winning streak to Chicago.
Playing with an ankle sprain certainly limits balance as well as mobility: speed, ability to quickly change direction and to jump.
The Knicks haven’t had Amar’e Stoudemire at full strength for either of their first-round exits in the last two years, and even he acknowledges that he’s “injury prone.”
