(GREENBURGH, N.Y.) — Amar’e Stoudemire will return in Game 3 for the Knicks on Saturday against the Pacers.
Stoudemire hasn’t played in a game since March 7 due to a right knee debridement, but the Knicks plan on giving him 10 to 15 minutes on Saturday night.
“It’s whatever. It’s a matter of will,” Stoudemire said. “I can play whatever the coaching staff wants me to play. “
“Any time you get on the court, you have a chance to make an impact on the game,” he continued. “So if I’m able to play for Game 3, however [much] time coach Woodson puts me in for, I’m going to definitely contribute.”
“It means everything to really be able to contribute and contend for a title,” he added. “I mean, obviously we have a lot more to go — we have a game to win in Indiana — but to be able to contribute, it would be awesome.”
