Knicks' Stoudemire Will Play in Game 3 Against Pacers

Rob Carr/Getty Images(GREENBURGH, N.Y.) -- Amar'e Stoudemire will return in Game 3 for the Knicks on Saturday against the Pacers.

Stoudemire hasn't played in a game since March 7 due to a right knee debridement, but the Knicks plan on giving him 10 to 15 minutes on Saturday night.

"It's whatever. It's a matter of will," Stoudemire said. "I can play whatever the coaching staff wants me to play. "

"Any time you get on the court, you have a chance to make an impact on the game," he continued. "So if I'm able to play for Game 3, however [much] time coach Woodson puts me in for, I'm going to definitely contribute."

"It means everything to really be able to contribute and contend for a title," he added. "I mean, obviously we have a lot more to go -- we have a game to win in Indiana -- but to be able to contribute, it would be awesome."
