GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — The New York Knicks say Jeremy Lin and Amare Stoudemire are both questionable for their game against the Milwaukee Bucks because of injuries.
Stoudemire didn’t even travel to the Knicks’ training center for shootaround after leaving the Knicks’ victory over Detroit on Saturday when his back tightened. Lin also sat out the fourth quarter with a sore right knee, but he took part in Monday’s workout.
Coach Mike Woodson says he won’t know who is playing until he gets to Madison Square Garden before the game.
Stoudemire’s injury is the bigger concern for the Knicks, given the back problems that hampered him during last season’s playoff loss to Boston. He said after Saturday’s game there was nothing to worry about and expected to play Monday.
