New York Knicks star forward Amar’e Stoudemire is listed as doubtful for tonight’s game against the Toronto Raptors, according to NorthJersey.com.
Stoudemire missed the Knicks 114-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings on New Years Eve, and has yet to run his sprained left ankle. The oft-injured power-forward tweaked the ankle in an 82-99 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
“He’s got to be 100 percent before he plays,” Knicks head coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters. “We’re not going to risk anything.” In three games this season Stoudemire is averaging 17.3 points and 6,0 rebounds per contest. Last year the All-Star big man averaged 25.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.
