The New York Knicks expect to get their 100 million dollar man back Saturday, Coach Mike Woodson announced. Amar’e Stoudemire is set to return from his second knee surgery of the season. Woodson said Stoudemire would have his minutes monitored in his first game back.
“It won’t be very many minutes. I’m thinking somewhere between 10 and 15 minutes, if that. We have talked about [managing expectations]…I thought maybe we might have pushed a little too much early on, so we’ve got to be really cautious this time around — just to make sure that we’re doing the right things with him… it’s not that we didn’t think that when he came back the first time, but this time, we really have got to be cautious. He understands; he has no choice.”
