GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Amar’e Stoudemire practiced for the first time this season Tuesday and he did so with the Knicks’ D-League team, the Erie Bayhawks.

Stoudemire will practice again Thursday with the Knicks and the team will go forward from there with a decision on his next step. There is no firm date for his return to game action.

“I felt good,” said Stoudemire, who underwent a knee debridement procedure in October that has kept him out as the Knicks started the season 18-6. “I was finally able to get out there and really play some type of scrimmage to a full practice. It was great.”

Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Monday that it was possible Stoudemire could debut this Friday or Sunday. But Woodson added Tuesday that everything depends on how he feels after Thursday’s practice.
