Amar'e Stoudemire participated in his first full practice since mid-October, but isn't sure if he will return on Jan. 1.
Stoudemire said he's not even 80 percent and would like to feel close to 100 percent before he plays.
"It would be great if I could go on Jan. 1," he said. "I can't determine how I feel tomorrow or the following day. If the next two days go well and I continue to improve, then that will be a great day to start playing."
The Knicks' injury woes have caused Stoudemire to want to return earlier.
