Amar'e Stoudemire To Start In Knicks Vs. Heat Game 4, According To Mike Woodson

After sitting out Game 3 with an injury to his hand, which punched a fire extinguisher after Game 2, New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire will return to the starting lineup, head coach Mike Woodson confirmed about an hour before tip off at Madison Square Garden.

The question now is, how much production will Stoudimire have with a banged-up hand that is more than likely nowhere near 100-percent? Even with him healthy, the Knicks struggled badly in games one and two, and some feel played batter in Game 3 without him.

Regardless, Stoudimire will play and try to do anything to help the Knicks avoid an embarrassing four-game sweep, which has already featured New York being beaten by an average of 20 points per game.
