Stoudemire had two points (1-2 FG), eight rebounds, and one assist in 16 minutes during the Heat's 100-93 loss against the Clippers on Sunday. Stoudmire continues to start alongside Chris Bosh despite Hassan Whiteside's return to the lineup a few games ago. It's unclear if this is something that will continue going forward for the remainder of the season, but it isn't resulting in Stoudemire seeing enough time to warrant much attention in fantasy.
Stoudemire will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Clippers, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports. The Heat will bring Hassan Whiteside off the bench for the third game in a row, as they continue to ease him back into action after his oblique injury. With that being said, Stoudemire will run with the starters again on Sunday. Stoudemire has seen just 17 and 16 minutes over his last two games respectively while Whiteside was available off the bench, so look for the Heat to keep his minutes in the mid-to-high teens again on Sunday. Stoudemire should eventually move back to a bench role when Whiteside has returned to full health.
Stoudemire had seven points (2-5 FG, 3-6 FT), five rebounds, and two blocks in 16 minutes during the Heat's 98-95 win over the Hornets on Friday. The veteran continues to start while Hassan Whiteside works his way back after a six-game absence with an oblique injury. Over the last five games, Stoudemire is averaging 10.4 points, eight rebounds, 1.8 blocks, and 0.4 steals in 20 minutes per contest--but in the last two games--both of which Whiteside played--Stoudmire saw a combined 33 minutes.
Stoudemire will start again Friday against the Hornets, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports. Hassan Whiteside will come off the bench for the second straight game as he continues to work back toward full strength after missing six games with an oblique injury. As such, the veteran Stoudemire will remain in a starting role Friday, though he's unlikely to see more than 20-25 minutes. Whiteside figures to return to a starting role at some point, though coach Erik Spoelstra declined to elaborate on his plans for the center spot beyond Friday.
Stoudemire continues to show signs of life, scoring 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds during 24 minutes in Tuesday's 115-102 loss to the Rockets. Amar'e knows that he doesn't have much time left in the league and is beginning to turn back the clock. He's posted back-to-back double-doubles and is consistently getting 20+ minutes a game with Hassan Whiteside out. The veteran forward shoulder definitely be owned in all deeper leagues until Whiteside is healthy.
