Knicks could have Stoudemire, Shumpert for Bobcats
Amare Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert could return from injuries
Wednesday, giving the New York Knicks some sorely needed scoring
Both players took part in a light practice Tuesday and then
played in a 3-on-3 workout on a short court. The Knicks say both
players will be game-time decisions against Charlotte.
Stoudemire has missed two straight games with a sprained left
ankle, while Shumpert has been sidelined since spraining a right
knee ligament in the season opener on Christmas. Without them, the
Knicks shot just 36 percent in a 90-85 loss to Toronto on
Shumpert, their first-round pick, seems well ahead of schedule.
The Knicks said he could miss two to four weeks after he was hurt
after scoring 11 points in his NBA debut.
