Amare says theres absolutely no pain in his knee, that hes ready to up his minutes tonight to make up for Melo's absence, even if it means he misses the b2b tomorrow. Says the original report was misconstrued.

Amar'e said there's "a misconception" about his knee after the latest minutes restriction came down yesterday, said it's precautionary.

With no Melo v Pacers, Amar'e says he expects to play more min, despite word he remains on 20min restriction. Knee sorness is gone. #Knicks

Woodson said Amare can only play about 20 minutes tonight. Amare said his minutes could be ramped up because of no Melo.
Who the hell knows whats going on, but I would not be surprised in the least if Woody is just trying to throw off Indy and their defensive game plan.
