Help, even though the Knicks don’t seem to need it, is on the way.
At some point, both Amar’e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert, two players recovering from knee surgery, will return to the lineup. In theory, their presence should make the Knicks stronger and deeper. But having Shumpert and especially Stoudemire back will eventually make Mike Woodson’s job that much tougher.
The starting lineup will be altered, and the rotation will change. Minutes will be cut, and egos will be stroked.
“When me and Amar’e get back, he’ll find a way to work us back in,” Shumpert said. “As long as we win, we’re happy.”
