Hey, puppies. I'll have some more links for you later, but I just wanted to set all the injury stuff aside in one post, so here's that post. Take the jump for some updates and try not to strain a hammy while you're doing it.
Here's the latest on Amar'e Stoudemire from Al Iannazzone. Nobody was around to play with him today!
Amare Stoudemire was at the Knicks practice facility, getting in a workout before the team flew to Cleveland.
A team spokesman said Stoudemire didnt scrimmage because there weren't enough bodies in the gym. Stoudemire will go through shootaround and unless there is a setback he could return tomorrow against the Cavaliers. Hes officially day-to-day.
I've chosen to read the word "bodies" by its usual, non-athletic meaning and am confused as to how a bunch of corpses would have helped Amar'e scrimmage.
- Amar'e certainly looks ready for action.
- Baron Davis got to rest his sore hamstring and distressed tummy and is expected to start again on Friday.
- Jared Jeffries is "questionable" for tomorrow's game.
- I haven't seen anything anywhere to suggest that Iman Shumpert and Landry Fields have experienced any lasting symptoms from their respective ankle turns during last night's game, which is good.
And that's the injury report! How are you guys holding up?
