NBA Injury News:
New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson recently told reporters that forward Amare Stoudemire would definitely play in the second round of the postseason if he’s able to get healthy. Stoudemire appears set to get back on the court, as a source close to the big man told Ian Begley and Jared Zwerlingof ESPN New York that they believe he will return to action in the second round.Stoudemire continues recovering from knee surgery he underwent in March. The procedure removed debridement from his ailing right knee.Yesterday, Stoudemire went through a few drills with teammates. After regular practice was over, he worked on his post-up game with assistant coach LaSalle Thompson. Stoudemire was reportedly moving aggressively and at a somewhat quick pace. He finished up by running for a while after shooting free throws.Stoudemire still isn’t quite there as far as his conditioning goes, and he’ll have to see time in 5-on-5 scrimmages before he’s cleared to return for the Knicks. Still, it’s starting to look more and more likely as though he’ll be available for Round 2.Follow @hoopsinjurynews

If you happen to be looking for hard-hitting interviews with New York Knicks players, then all you have to do is call on the Knicks kid reporters to get down to the nitty-gritty. Recently, the Knicks released two videos which star kid reporters Ryan and Jaylah asking some hard-hitting questions about player hairstyles and the goatee of head coach Mike Woodson: If I learned anything...
New York Knicks guard Jason Kidd has become the first player to win back-to-back NBA sportsmanship awards.
Kidd received 91 first-place votes from league players and 2,474 total points Tuesday to claim the Joe Dumars Trophy in his first season in New York. He won the award last season, his final one in Dallas.
Three-time winner Grant Hill is only other player to win the award multiple...
Jordan Crawford had another infamous DNP (Did Not Play, Coaches’ Decision), but he was running his mouth like he was Floyd Mayweather.
After the Knicks choked away Game 5, things got a little chippy as the teams left the court.
Now either Crawford said “MF F*ck Off or MF F*cked Your Wife”.
This is important because of the whole Kevin Garnett Honey Nut Cheerios situation last...
Dear J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin,
Thanks for being complete overconfident, obnoxious idiots. Thanks for saying the stupidest things in the media. Thanks for whatever that did to your team tonight.
I want to specifically call out and thank J.R. Smith, the most generous of them all. Smith bemoaned earlier that the Knicks would've won Game 4 if he was not suspended...
Having waited longer than he should have, the stink of his performance still lingering at Madison Square Garden, Carmelo Anthony appeared at last clad in black and wearing a smile as false and empty as his game.
The black stood for a funeral, but not the kind he and his tacky teammates had anticipated. It was a funeral for the idea Anthony has shed his postseason underachiever&...
J.R. Smith might be Sixth Man of the Year, but no one has ever said he was a brain surgeon. His dumb play in game three got him suspended for a game 4 loss where he was dearly missed. However, on Tuesday, he said possibly the smartest thing he has ever said.
Smith talked to reporters at the team’s practice on Tuesday, and said that if he hadn’t been suspended for game 4,...
The Knicks are not making brash claims anymore. J.R. Smith has silenced himself a bit since he boldly proclaimed that the Knicks’ series against the Celtics would be over if he had played in Game 4, and Kenyon Martin is not saying much of anything after telling his teammates to show up for Game 5 dressed in black for the Celtics’ funeral.
Once confident to the level of almost...
Every Wednesday at Turn On The Knicks our staff will debate an issue of the week surrounding the team here in Roundtable Format. Make sure to give everybody a follow on Twitter, along with follow the site right here. Let us know if you agree/disagree.
Give your prediction for when the Knicks will finish off the Celtics, who they will play in the second round and how that series...
It’s the NBA playoffs so everything is major. Following a skirmish at the end of Wednesday night’s Celtics vs. Knicks. Celts reserve Jordan Crawford could be seen talking sh*t to Carmelo Anthony. There are several people who graduated from lip reading 101 believe that Crawford said something to the effect of “my homeboy fu*ked your wife.” The jury is still out on that but...
Tempers flared following the Celtics 92-86 win over the Knicks on Wednesday night as Jordan Crawford, Carmelo Anthony, D.J. White and Raymond Felton exchanged words. Crawford appeared to trash talk Carmelo Anthony on his way to the locker room which caused a reaction from Felton and White who then had to be restrained by teammates.
It's pretty clear why Knicks forward Kenyon Martin was upset after the game last night. This is the Playoffs and every team wants to win, but if you're going to talk trash all week it's best if you back it up. The Knicks clearly didn't back up any of theirs.
Here JR Smith has a few words about the scuffle after the final buzzer.
The 2004 Yankees will tell you how easy it is for a playoff series to get away from you. I vividly remember the cover of the sports section of the NYTimes on the day of game 4 against the Red Sox and there were brooms all over it, as they approached a sweep. Just a few days later, the Yankees were eliminated by their long-time rival, and before they knew it, the curse of the Bambino...
What the Celtics have needed all season is to come together as a team, to move the ball and make the most of their talent, to not fall into ruts where other teams can feast on their weaknesses.
For many stretches this year, the Celtics could not do that. Then, even after they discovered how to play in such a way after losing Rajon Rondo to a season-ending injury, they stumbled again...
Jason Kidd has won the 2012-13 NBA Sportsmanship award.
Kidd won the award, which is given to a player who demonstrates ethical behavior, fair play and integrity, last season as well.
Luol Deng, Stephen Curry, Mike Conley, Nick Collison and Jameer Nelson were also nominated for the award.
Knicks fans are hysterical. So boastful and full of themselves at the beginning and all their players are the best ever. They start losing the game and all their players are all losers and should be cut. And when all else fails, blame the refs. Pretty much, the officiating wasn't all that bad in this game. The Knicks shot 3 more free throws than the Celtics...
