The New York Knicks will look to remain undefeated in the preseason when they take on the Raptors in Toronto on Friday night.

The Knicks have not played since Saturday, when they narrowly beat the Celtics, 98-95. The New York starters played well last week, and Carmelo Anthony led the charge with 23 points.

The big news for the Knicks will be the return of Amare Stoudemire. The 6-11 power forward did not travel with the team to Boston last weekend, but he is expected to return to action tonight, following a week of practice with the team. Stoudemire has been out with a knee injury that he suffered during training camp.

Last year, the Knicks and Raptors split their regular season series 2-2. The Raptors (2-1 this preseason) are fresh off a victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night. Landry Fields led Toronto in scoring with 15 points.

Game time: 7 pm ET
