Iman Shumpert seems alright; Amar'e Stoudemire is getting alright

Last night, in the 3rd quarter, I believe, Iman Shumpert sprained his ankle and was noticeably gimpy getting off the floor. Naturally, with the Knicks' already-banged-up roster, another injury to a key member of the rotation - especially the current backup point guard - would really hurt the Knicks.

But at practice today (the Knicks held practice, by the way), Iman sounded good to go:
@I_Am_Iman: I'll be ready to go vs Miami #NYKAllday we outchea
I can't say I know what "we outchea" means, but it seems good! I believe it's either a dialectical "we out here" or "we - ouch! - yeah/here" - a possible reference to Iman's and the Knicks' various injuries. But Mike Woodson seemed to back up the notion pf Iman's well-being, according to Jared Zwerling:
UPDATE: Shumpert says he'll play tomorrow against the Heat. Woodson said "He'll be ready to go."
In other practice news, Amar'e Stoudemire (remember him?) participated in some 4-on-4 and seemed to be moving well. Apparently he's still not talking to media, which I think is kind of cool, and a sign that he's really focusing on getting back to 100%. If he does return next week (folks have pointed to Wednesday's game against NJ), it would be a nice week to shake off the rust and get ready for the playoffs.

More updates as they come, ya'll. Enjoy your Saturdays and maybe spend some time in that sun thing.
