Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni has said Amare Stoudemire is doubtful for the team’s Monday against Toronto. Fantasy owners of Carmelo Anthony rejoice.

Stoudemire rolled his ankle against the Warriors last week. New York was without him against the Kings Saturday and got the win, but that was the Kings. They have issues. Of course, the Raptors are not a power and are on the second night of a back-to-back after blowing a game against Orlando.

No Stoudemire means Josh Harrellson will start at the four, and the rookie had 14 points and 12 boards against the Kings.

Carmelo Anthony had 23 points in that Kings game, but did it with a very efficient 15 shots, Tyson Chandler had 22 on just eight shots (he got to the line 10 times and didn’t miss once). Toney Douglas tried to balance them out with 17 points on 18 shots.

    get off T.D s back he play well despite the amount of shots he took. to all you naysayers i dont like 62 shooting guards even though Toney plays both spots, he is gonna learn the lead position period.
