04:38 PM ET 04.24 | With the New York Knicks jumping out to a 2-0 lead on the Boston Celtics in their first round series, there appears to be little pressure or reason for forward Amare Stoudemire to make an urgent push to return from knee surgery. Stoudemire last played on March 7 and four days later underwent a knee procedure to clean up his knee. The rehabilitation time was set at four-to-six weeks, but as is, it looks like the best bet for Stoudemire's return would tab him back in the second round of the playoffs. For now, however, he'll take his time as the Knicks continue to push past the Celtics with ease. "If we continue to win, then that gives me more time to really heal up 100 percent," Stoudemire said. "So that's kind of the blessing that we have right now."
