Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire Growing Frustrated of Minutes Limit

NBA via New York Knicks(NEW YORK) -- As the losses continue to pile up for the New York Knicks, power forward Amar'e Stoudemire is starting to get frustrated with the minutes limit that has kept him from being effective this season so far.

"It's making me look like my game is gone or that I don't have game anymore because when you play five minutes, its' just tough to really get in a rhythm," Stoudemire said.

Stoudemire has dealt with knee injuries in recent years since joining the Knicks, and the team has decided to cap his minutes at around 10 per game. As a result, Stoudemire is averaging just 3.2 point and 1.8 rebounds per game.

Stoudemire is a six-time All-Star, and has averaged 21.1 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. He is still under contract through next season and is being paid $21.67 million this season, and will be paid $45 million combined for this season and next.
