First action for Amare since April
By Jared Zwerling
Tonight, Amare Stoudemire is set to take the court in his first 5-on-5 contact game since April 24 -- the day the Celtics swept the Knicks in the first round of the playoffs. Stoudemire will be joining teammate Carmelo Anthony at Florida International University for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh's South Florida All-Star Classic.
Former Knicks center Eddy Curry, who's now a free agent and has been scouted by the Heat, was scheduled to play but is no more. To watch the game, go to CBSMiami.com. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Here are the expected rosters for the star-studded showcase:
Bosh, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Rajon Rondo, Rudy Gay, Jamal Crawford, Jonny Flynn and Damon Jones.
Wade's Team STAT, Melo, Chris Paul, Caron Butler, John Wall, Dorell Wright, Mario Chalmers and TBD.
