Amar’e Stoudemire could return on New Year’s Day.
The Knicks’ forward told Newsday that date was “a possibility.”
“Obviously, coming back from an injury, you have to slowly build your way up to get back to where you once were,” he said yesterday, according to reports, “so there’s no pressure right now of starting. I think it’s more so about continuing to win—keep that momentum going and keep guys positive and feeling energetic about the game.”
