Tonight the Knicks will head out to Cleveland to play the Cavs. Joining the Knicks may be our old friend Amare Stoudemire. Stat has been out with the bulging disk in his back since March 24th. While Dwight Howard, who has the same injury, is reportedly out for the season and post season, Amare will be coming back to play tonight.

 

Stat is expected to return to the starting 5. Melo has been playing the power forward position in Amare’s absence. So who comes out of the starting lineup? It may have to be Landry Fields who has had an absolutely horrendous sophomore season. That would put Baron Davis at the point and Shumpert at shooting guard. A healthy Amare could make this team a massive playoff threat.
