NEW YORK (AP) -- Amare Stoudemire started for the New York Knicks in Game 4 of their series against Miami, six days after cutting his hand punching a fire extinguisher case.
Interim coach Mike Woodson says Stoudemire will play in Sunday's game with padding covering his hand. Stoudemire was hurt after Monday's Game 2 in Miami and had surgery to repair a muscle the next day.
The Knicks originally listed him as doubtful for Sunday's game, but Stoudemire resumed workouts Friday and was cleared by doctors to return.
Stoudemire averaged 13.5 points in the first two games for the Knicks, who are trying to avoid elimination.
