Stoudemire Feels Less Than 80% Healthy
After practicing with his teammates for the first time in more than two months, New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire said he isn’t close to 100% healthy but is willing to take the floor Tuesday if the banged-up Knicks need him.
While his knee feels better than it did last week while working with the Knicks’ D League team, the Erie BayHawks, Stoudemire says he still feels restricted on the floor. He estimated that he’s not yet at 80% health because of lingering soreness in his knee and a lack of explosiveness.
“I can do pretty much anything, but it just feels sore when I make certain moves,” the power forward said.
