Knicks target Game 3 return for Amar'e

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson has targeted Game 3 of the Knicks-Pacers series as the date for Amar'e Stoudemire's return.

Stoudemire has been sidelined since early March 7 with a right knee injury. He underwent a procedure to clean out debris in the knee on March 11.

He has been ruled out of the first two games of the Knicks-Pacers series but may play in Game 3 on Saturday.

Woodson said Stoudemire will scrimmage with his teammates on Thursday. If his knee responds well, he will scrimmage again on Friday.

"If he feels fine after Friday then I think we will play him Saturday," Woodson said.
