Amare Stoudemire practiced for the first time this season Tuesday, though the Knicks forward isn't sure when he can return.
Stoudemire scrimmaged with Erie, the Knicks' NBA Development League affiliate, which was practicing at the Knicks' training center. The Knicks weren't planning to have a full-court workout, so they decided to give Stoudemire work with the BayHawks.
Stoudemire has been out all season after left knee surgery. He told reporters he felt soreness after the practice, but has been very pleased with his progress.
The Knicks have three more games on their six-game homestand, then travel to Los Angeles to face the Lakers on Christmas. Stoudemire said he doesn't know if he will be ready for any of those games.
He also added he would be willing to come off the bench if necessary, saying ''whatever it takes to win, that's the goal.''

Amare Stoudemire has not played for the New York Knicks this season. Depending on your outlook, it's either a good thing that he is coming back and can help the team continue their success, or it's a bad thing because he could derail their chemistry. No matter, what side you land on, Stoudemire is a proven player in the NBA, he's an All-Star, and he is getting close...
Will Amare accept a lesser role?
Knicks 100 Nets 86
The New York Knicks tonight came out and took care of business. They did what they needed to do in the second half of the game and pulled away to get their 19th win of the season. Melo returned from injury and picked up where he left off with 31 Pts. Knicks win 100-86.
Carmelo never missed a beat as he stuck a few jumpers to get the Knicks...
Charles Barkley is never one to be short of an opinion.
The New York Knicks are never short of opinions on their performance.
It was only natural that Chuck would proffer a critique of the Knicks and their surprisingly potent NBA season to date. Newsday quotes Barkley as such:
Everybody in New York thinks the Knicks are Playboy bunnies, and I have been telling...

The New York Knicks are 18-6 this year, sitting on top of the Eastern Conference. They finally look like the team they should have been for the last few years, and they have done it without Amar’e Stoudemire seeing the floor.
Now that Stoudemire is returning from his knee injury, there are questions as to whether he would help or hurt the team by joining the starting lineup...
After a disheartening defeat to Jeremy Lin, Toney Douglas, and the new-look Houston Rockets, the Knicks will look to avenge their first home court loss, against the Nets on Wednesday.The two teams have already begun to have a heated inner-city rivalry, so far splitting the season series at one a piece. While Brooklyn shocked New York with a commanding loss earlier in the year, Jason...
Yikes. Jeremy Lin and J.R. Smith trade back-to-back airball three point attempts in the 2nd quarter:
Spike Lee showed up to MSG earlier than usual on Monday night to deliver backup point guard, Pablo Prigioni a new pair of orange and blue kicks. “You can’t wear purple, man!” proclaimed Lee who said the point guard even wore the colorway against the Lakers last week. “This is the orange and blue, baby” Lee tells Prigioni who agreed to give the new pair a try.
The New York Knicks must have been practicing the alley-oop on their days off lately. I say this because center Tyson Chandler performed three of these against the Brooklyn Nets tonight. They were all pretty impressive, my favorite was the second one with about a minute and half to go in the third quarter. On that dunk Raymond Felton drove the lane and as the defenders closed...
NEW YORK -- Jeremy Lin acknowledged it felt odd walking back into the building in which he became a national sensation. The Houston Rockets guard didn't know what kind of reaction to expect from all those Madison Square Garden fans who cheered him last season while wearing his No. 17 New York Knicks jersey, savoring the craze known as "Linsanity." When Lin took...
According to Ian Begley of ESPN NY, Amar’e Stoudemire refuted recent rumors that he was targeting the Knicks Christmas day game against the Lakers as a return date.

Jeremy Lin’s return to the Madison Square Garden was a memorable one exploding the New York Knicks on Monday night 109-96.
Lin’s impact throughout the game reminisced his glory days with the Knicks. His motives to create shots for himself and his teammates was relevant over the course of the victory. The former Harvard guard posted...
The beginning of the regular season allows us to make some…silly predictions, to say the least. If you don't believe me, look just at last year's shortened season. This time last season, the Denver Nuggets were being lauded as a finals team, the Philadelphia 76ers looked like one of the best teams in the East, the Celtics were struggling, Indiana was...
