Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire hopes to return for playoffs

New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire told reporters – including Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York – that his rehab has been “going well,” and he’s aiming to rejoin the team 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."

Stoudemire has been recovering from a right knee debridement procedure since early March. The surgery removed debris from the area, and he underwent a similar operation on his left knee in October.

While injuries are never welcomed, Stoudemire believes his recent knee ailment occurred at an opportune time. If all continues to go well during his rehab, the forward should be able to return for the playoffs.
