Amar'e Stoudemire sat out on Saturday night as the Knicks defeated the Nets 105-95.

Stoudemire is dealing with a sprained right big toe. He expects to play against the Hawks on Wednesday after receiving three days of treatment.

"Hopefully [I'll be able to play Wednesday]," said Stoudemire. "I'll get treatment tomorrow and a few days of rest. I'll be able to get some pretty good treatment the next three days, so I should be able to go on Wednesday."

Stoudemire was ruled out approximately 45 minutes before Saturday night's tipoff.

"Just right before going out, I knew it was bothering him a little bit," coach Mike D'Antoni said. "But I didn't see him and talk to him. And he just kept trying to get weight on it. So we scratched him."

He suffered the injury on Friday night when he collided with L.A.'s Ron Artest while running down the court.
