Knicks coach Mike Woodson may be fired before the Feb. 20 trade deadline, according to Steve Popper of The Record. "With the trade deadline looming and no reason to tank," Popper writes, "the Knicks are desperate to make a playoff push." The team's struggles go much deeper than Woodson's job performance, but Amare Stoudemire questioned his playing time on Tuesday and it seems Woodson has lost the confidence of his players. Stay tuned.Amare Stoudemire isn't happy with his lack of playing time in recent games.
He played four minutes in his return from injury and illness on Feb. 1, then played 17 minutes in Monday's loss in Milwaukee. "From a doctorís standpoint, there hasnít been limitations since the first week of the season," Stoudemire said. "So we canít keep saying limitations. Thatís a coachís decision at the end of the day. I feel great. I am ready to play." Woodson did say recently that Amare will be "getting his minutes" going forward, and he's worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues.
