After having knee-debridement surgery on November 1 2012, New York Knicks’ forward Amar’e Stoudemire is finally ready for action. Tonight, he makes his debut against the Portland Trailblazers.
The New York Knicks are off to a great start this season and the last thing that anyone wants to see is a disruption in their progress. Not having played this season, besides one preseason game on October 19th, Stoudemire might be rusty and could potentially disrupt the Knicks' current team chemistry.
When asked how he felt in an interview, he replied, "After those two days of practice with the team, I was able to get a good indication on how I truly feel. I felt better after Day 1. I felt even better after Day 2,"The New York Post reports.
His statements should give some comfort to fans, but just like always, we will see after the game. Because of injuries the enitre Knicks team has not had a chance to play together.
The Associated Press reports that Stoudemire will be playing limited minutes tonight, easing his way back into action and lessening the chance of reinjuring his knee.
