Knicks’ Stoudemire Hopes for Playoff Return
New York Knicks power forward Amar’e Stoudemire, who has been sidelined since early March while recovering from a right knee debridement procedure, said Thursday his rehab is “going well” and that he hopes to be back in time for the playoffs.
“There’s no timetable set on my return,” he said during a conference call for an upcoming self-documentary. “Hopefully, I can return soon enough for the postseason. I’m gearing toward that, but I want to make sure I’m ready and 100 percent. … It’s only been two weeks since the procedure, so we’re still taking precautionary measures and just making sure everything heals up perfectly before we get too far ahead of ourselves.”
