Found December 28, 2012 on Beyond The Buzzer:
As long as injuries don’t necessitate otherwise, New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire will come off the bench when he returns to the team, league sources with knowledge of the Knicks’ thinking said. The Knicks hope Stoudemire will return to the lineup Tuesday at home against the Portland Trail Blazers. The team would like Stoudemire to come off the bench initially, though sources cautioned there is a possibility he will have to return as a starter due to injuries.  “It’s a fluid situation (because of injuries),” one source said. “But they want him to come off the bench to start.” via ESPN
