Amare expected back on Monday

Amare Stoudemire is expected to return to the New York Knicks on Monday.

Stoudemire left for Florida two days ago to mourn the loss of his brother, Hazell, who died in a car crash Monday morning. He missed that night's game against Utah and will miss Wednesday's game against the Wizards in Washington, Friday's home game against the Los Angeles Lakers and Saturday's game at Minnesota.

Coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters in Washington that Stoudemire should be back for Monday's practice. If Stoudemire returns then, he should be able to suit up for Tuesday's road game against Toronto.
