Amar’e Stoudemire may make his return from October knee surgery during the first week of January.

“It’s possible — it would be awesome if I am able to,” said Stoudemire.

Stoudemire had previously hoped to return in time for Christmas.

“I feel pretty good. I am still improving and still getting better,” he said. “I just want to make sure I am 100%. So that’s the main goal right now to continue to get to that point. I am not quite there yet, but I am making progress.”
