It sounds like Amar'e Stoudemire will play against Portland.

Tonight could be Amar'e's debut.

Good afternoon, friends. I've just returned home post-New Year's things, so I'm a bit late to Adrian Wojnarowski's sourced report that Amar'e Stoudemire intends to make his debut tonight against Portland.

After undergoing preseason knee surgery, New York Knicks All-Star forward Amar'e Stoudemire will make his season debut on Tuesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Whether or not Carmelo Anthony returns from his hyper-extended knee on Tuesday, the plan remains for Stoudemire to come off the Knicks' bench. Anthony told reporters that he will test his knee in pre-game on Tuesday and then make a determination on returning to the lineup.

Cool. I would have been fine just waiting until tonight to see what happens, but cool. I'm sure Amar'e will look rusty and a little out of sorts in in his first few stints, but hopefully he can make a positive impact whilst finding his court legs. Lost in all this intrigue surrounding Amar'e's return and Melo's questionable status is the fact that New York has lost four of the past seven and could really use a win against these 15-14 Blazers to get back on track. Things are kind of a mess right now, but we're hopefully moving in the right direction.

Happy New Year, y'all. More Knicks-Blazers stuff later.
