10:13 AM ET 12.21 | After clearing the air with Mike Woodson over his availability, Amar'e Stoudemire declared that he's "without a doubt" playing Saturday against Memphis at the Garden. "I'm ready to go. I have a few days of rest and I feel great," Stoudemire said after practice Friday in Greenburgh. Woodson had revealed on Tuesday that Stoudemire would "be out a while" because of swelling in one of his surgically repaired knees. Stoudemire skipped the trip to Milwaukee, but he angrily refuted Woodson's prognosis on Twitter, insisting in all caps that he was "NOT INJURED."

Good. He's averaging 11.5ppg and 4.5 in 22mpg over the last 10 games. They need him.

Those aren't great numbers but he gives them an inside presence when he's on the floor.

for a bench guy (not including his salary)- that is decent
the issue though will always be when will he break down... not 'if'

Amare always has a decent stretch or to each season. But then he has an injury followed by a bad stretch or three
