Amar'e Stoudemire Injury: Knicks Power Forward Will Start Game 4 Against Heat

Amar'e Stoudemire will start Game 4 against the Miami Heat, according to New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson, who spoke with the media at Madison Square Garden shortly before the game. After going through a full practice on Saturday afternoon, the Knicks announced Stoudemire would likely be a game-time decision. That decision is in, and he will apparently be on the floor for tip as New York tries to stave off elimination against the Heat. Via Frank Isola:

Stoudemire is recovering from a nasty, self-inflicted gash across his left hand after punching through the glass of a fire extinguisher at AmericanAirlines Arena after Game 2. It was initially believed he was done for the series but, after sitting out just one game, he's back and will try to stop a 13-game postseason losing streak for New York.
