Amar'e Stoudemire said on Thursday that he will return to action on Friday against the Cavaliers.

The Knicks have a 9-4 record during Stoudemire's absence.

“I’ve got to make it work,” Mike Woodson said. “I’m going to bring Amar’e back when he decides to come back and he’s going to start and we’re going to make it work. That’s what I’m going to make happen.”
