Whether or not Knicks fans think it'll help their team, Amare Stoudemire is expected to return to New York's lineup on Friday during their matchup against the Cavaliers in Cleveland.
Although Carmelo Anthony has produced much better statistics without Stoudemire, New York fans continue to reiterate that 'Melo needs another scorer on the court with him.
But could his return affect Anthony's play during the remainder of the season?
Stoudemire's back injury will have forced him to miss 13 games by his return at the end of the week. If the Knicks hope to make their presence known in the playoffs, they'll need both Anthony and Stoudemire producing top-quality plays as they head into the postseason.
