GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson says Amar'e Stoudemire would be limited to about 10 to 15 minutes per game if he is able to return during New York's playoff series against the Indiana Pacers.

Stoudemire worked out again Thursday as he nears his return from right knee surgery. He played in 4-on-4 scrimmages and says he felt better than he did after playing 3-on-3 on Monday.

The Knicks will wait to see how the veteran forward feels Friday before determining whether he will be in uniform Saturday for Game 3 in Indianapolis.

Stoudemire averaged 14.2 points in 29 games off the bench before surgery March 11 to clean up and remove tissue from his knee. comments
