NYK’s Stoudemire Capped at 30 Minutes
The $100 million man will be the 30-minute man the rest of the season.
Amar’e Stoudemire has truly joined the 30-30 club. He turned 30 in November, and coach Mike Woodson said yesterday he won’t be permitted to play him more than 30 minutes the rest of the season because of Stoudemire’s recent left-knee surgery.
A combination of the medical staff led by Dr. Lisa Callahan, general manager Glen Grunwald and Woodson jointly agreed 30 minutes per game are enough for 2012-13 — for Stoudemire’s longevity and efficiency.
