Lin, STAT battling soreness

The Knicks announced during Saturday night’s game against the Detroit Pistons that point guard Jeremy Lin has a sore left knee and power forward Amare Stoudemire has a sore lower back and is questionable to return.

Lin has 13 points, three assists and seven turnovers in 23 minutes, while Stoudemire has 17 points and eight rebounds in 24 minutes.

With the Knicks winning handily in the fourth quarter, it is unlikely that either will return.
