Found January 10, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
After Amare Stoudemire played 28 minutes on Monday, he experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee.  The New York Knicks power forward has played in just four games since returning from the injury this season, but the team has been progressively giving him more minutes.  They will cut back today. The Knicks will heed the advice of doctors and reduce Stoudemire's minutes tonight against the Indiana Pacers says Ian Begley of ESPN New York.  Neither Stoudemire nor coach Mike Woodson called the decision a setback in Stoudemire's continued recovery.  However, Woodson acknowledged that the 28 minutes he allowed Stoudemire to play on Monday was probably too much. Stoudemire underwent surgery on his knee back in October.  He had missed the entire season up until late last week when he made his debut against the Portland Trail Blazers.  The Knicks have been trying to integrate him into the lineup slowly, but had planned all along to bring Stoudemire off the bench rather than start him.In his career, Stoudemire has averaged 21.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.  So far this season, his number have been down, but that's because of the reduced minutes.  He is averaging 10.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game in his four games since returning.

Knicks Interested in K-Mart?

Not sure how accurate this is since the Knicks will guarantee Cope and Sheed. The question is how Sheed’s injury is and will it allow him to get on the floor anytime soon? I believe Sheed’s presence and wisdom is too much for the Knicks to let go at this point. The Knicks are deep enough to get through this stretch without Rasheed, but they definitely miss him on the court....

POTD 1/10/13: DeMarcus Cousins on Bernard James

Today happens to be one of those days where I wish I could choose two winners, as both JR Smith and DeMarcus Cousins are entirely deserving of this particular POTD.  Each player threw down one of two remarkable slam dunks that, although very different, are almost equally impressive.  Smith took flight from the fringe of the painted area and, having launched off of his right foot...
