Less than a week after "half his hand was just hanging off" Amar'e will start for the Knicks today in what will most likely be New York's final game of the season.

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.

Who knows, maybe it will be inspiring like Willis Reed v2.0. Or maybe it will be like Willis Reed without the slashing and dashing Clyde Frazier.
