Amare Stoudemire (ankle) is questionable to return for Thursday's game vs. the Cavaliers.
"We'll get a better feel [Wednesday] when we go in there for practice," said coach Mike Woodson. Jeremy Tyler has stepped up nicely with the Knicks' frontcourt short-handed, and he scored 17 points in just 23 minutes on Tuesday, so New York is unlikely to rush back Stoudemire if there are any doubts about his health.Kenyon Martin rolled his left ankle during the first half of Tuesday's game, but he vowed "without a question" to play vs. the Cavs on Thursday.
"I probably could have finished the game if we weren't up so big," said Martin. His ankles are a constant source of concern and his playing time is too limited to rely on him in standard leagues, even with Andrea Bargnani (elbow) and Amare Stoudemire (ankle) on the shelf.
