Fisher: No minutes limit for Amar'e

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- For the first time in a long time, Amar'e Stoudemire is not playing with a minutes restriction. Stoudemire has played with minutes restrictions for most of the past two seasons. Last year, he wasn’t permitted by the Knicks’ medical staff to play in both games of a back-to-back for much of the year. He also couldn’t play more than 30 minutes in a game for the first 50-plus games. The restrictions were in place in an effort to keep Stoudemire healthy.

Phoenix Suns SB Nation Season Preview: Playoffs or not, the Suns are back

Suns fans were steeling themselves for a long rebuild, but someone hit the fast-forward button. Armed with an absurd amount weaponry in the backcourt, the team is returning to its roots. How far can their guards take them? After opting not to hitch their wagon to the troublesome knees of Amare Stoudemire in 2010, which was a sound long-term decision, the Suns majority owner Robert Sarver stubbornly refused to commit to rebuilding, even as the Suns quickly found themselves in the dreaded position of being neither competitive nor young. As the carousel of role players churned on -- Hakim...

Fisher starts J.R. in preseason opener

Hartford, CT -- Derek Fisher decided to start J.R. Smith at shooting guard in the Knicks' first preseason game. Fisher went with Smith, Jose Calderon, Carmelo Anthony, Andrea Bargnani and Samuel Dalembert in the starting lineup for Wednesday's preseason opener against Boston. Fisher, though, made it clear that his lineup can change before the start of the regular season. It was mildly interesting that Fisher went with Bargnani over Amar'e Stoudemire and chose to start Smith over Tim Hardaway Jr.

Forgotten Amar'e Stoudemire looking to rebound from difficult year

Try to picture Amar'e Stoudemire as a modern day Judd Nelson, wearing a trench coat while walking across an empty football field and defiantly raising his fist to the tunes of 80's alt-rockers Simple Minds.

Amar'e wants to refresh your memory

GREENBURGH, N.Y. –- It’s been easy to overlook Amar'e Stoudemire this preseason. With all the Knicks buzz surrounding Phil Jackson, Derek Fisher, Carmelo Anthony and the triangle, Stoudemire has been the forgotten man. “Yeah, I think so,” Stoudemire said. “I think the previous years of battling injuries, people have forgot. “But it’s my job to remind them.” There’s no better time for Stoudemire to remind people what he can do than this season.

Watch the Knicks mock Cleanthony Early's high school hair bun

New York Knicks training camp is well underway, which means we in the media can finally ditch speculative nonsense articles and focus on real, nitty-gritty basketball reporting...about rookie forward Cleanthony Early's hair bun experiment in high school: Several teammates were asked to comment on the bun. You have to admire the candor of Carmelo Anthony and Iman Shumpert, who copped to rocking the ponytail in their youth. Shane Larkin and Amar'e Stoudemire were far more critical; STAT was particularly brutal. Hey Amar'e, I love you, man, but maybe people in glass fashion houses shouldn't...

Better check those expiration dates. Amar’e Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani will combine for $35.4 million in expiring contracts after the upcoming season for Phil Jackson and the Knicks to have some workable cap space next summer.

Stoudemire: I can log 30 minutes per night

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Amar'e Stoudemire is confident that he’ll be able to play 30 minutes per night this season. “Oh, for sure. Having the year I had last year from a health standpoint is very positive. ... I hope it allows me to play even more this season,” Stoudemire said Monday. Stoudemire has been on a minutes restriction for much of the last two seasons due to various knee ailments. He may play on another minutes restriction this season.
