Amar'e Stoudemire Injury Update

Amar'e Stoudemire is still out with a back injury, but it appears he's making some progress. Before Sunday's game against Chicago, he was participating in drills where he was running, cutting, and dunking.

Today, it seems like he's back at it, according to multiple reports. Al Iannazzone's take:
Amar'e Stoudemire on the court with the knicks during shootaround here in chicago.
Mike Woodson said Amare won't play tonight or tomorrow. It's up to doctors and amar'e when he returns.
Marc Berman also mentioned that Amar'e looked "great" today in shoot-around.

It's still unclear when Stoudemire will officially return. Thus far (much to the repugnance of the beat reporters) Amar'e has been silent and avoided giving injury updates. One can only hope that this means Stoudemire is focusing solely on working hard and getting back. He had his epidural shot just under two weeks ago and the original prognosis said his recovery time would take two to four weeks. If he's already participating in drills and shoot-arounds, perhaps we can see him return sometime next week.
